Domantas Sabonis extends on the long term with the Kings!


It’s been in the air for a while, especially after the Kings’ incredible 2022-23 season. We must reward the soldiers in place and lock them for the future, so the leaders of the Californian franchise have just offered a nice jackpot to one of their All-Stars, Domantas Sabonis!

Magnificent career as that of Domantas Sabonis. A linear progression over his first five seasons in the NBA, one at OKC and four with the Pacers, two All-Star selections before leaving Indiana and therefore this trade to the Kings, against Tyrese Haliburton, in February 2022. Since? Domas weighs more and more and has achieved the feat of participating this season in bringing the Kings back to the Playoffs, while continuing to produce and fight. Result ? Reward !

Sacramento Kings All-NBA C Domantas Sabonis has agreed to a contract renegotiation and extension for a total of $217M over five years — including $195M in new money, his agents Greg Lawrence and Jason Ranne tell ESPN.

There was one year left on the contract for the Lithuanian pivot, but the Kings and him therefore renegotiated the said contract upwards and above all added four more years to the bottom of the sheet. In the end, a little over 200 broccoli for the spirited left-hander, a dog punk look but a goldsmith with the ball in hand, who will therefore continue to distribute chestnuts and buckets for a good while in Sacramento. Note that the Kings have also retained Alex Len for a year and a little over 3 million dollars, so the Kings have locked their position 5 for next season!
