It is, after all a contract that could cost them up to $231 million. But assuming Williamson stays healthy and plays, then it will pay off for them. Another winner would be the Minnesota Timberwolves, who keeps Karl-Anthony Towns, also gets Rudy Gobert. The tradeoff was steep, trading off 6 players to Utah, as well as multiple first-round picks up to 2029.

Nikola Jokic signed a five-year, $264 million contract that will give him a whopping $60 million in his last year of the contract.
