Domantas Sabonis Contract & Salary Breakdown

Last Updated: July 4, 2023
The Sacramento Kings big man continues to be a double-double machine, as he leads the NBA in rebounding thus far in the 2022-23 season. Boardroom breaks down his current contract.

Domantas Sabonis doesn’t often get the credit he’s due. This is due in large part to just how talented the NBA is today — his name is often lost in the shuffle in an era featuring such a plethora of superstar bigs like Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Joel Embiid.

It doesn’t help that the 26-year-old had only played in 13 playoff games through a seven-year career upon joining the Sacramento Kings, but that narrative shifted over the course of the 2022-23 season. Sabonis propelled the SacTown to 20 wins faster than any season since 2004-05, eventually breaking the longest playoff drought in the league. Suffice it to say that NBA pundits quickly forget how they absolutely bashed the trade that sent Tyrese Haliburton to Indiana in exchange for the 7-footer.

All told, whether he’s overpaid or underpaid is up for you to decide — let’s take a closer look at the Kings’ Domantas Sabonis contract details, including the renegotiated extension that pushes its total value past the eye-popping $200 million mark.
