Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela agreed to a two-year, $ 46 million contract extension, linking him to the franchise through the 2024-2025 season, sources told ESPN on Wednesday.
Capela had two years left on his current contract, and now he’s set to make $ 82 million over the next four seasons with the Hawks.
His representatives at Wasserman completed the new agreement with Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk before the Oct. 18 deadline for the extension.
Capela, 27, played a key role in the Hawks’ run to the Eastern Conference Finals last season. He averaged the league-leading 15.2 points and 14.3 rebounds in the regular season and played well in postseason series wins over New York and Philadelphia.
The Hawks acquired Capela in a 2020 trade with Houston, where he had played his first six NBA seasons.
Capela is the third major player to sign a contract extension this summer for Atlanta, joining guard Trae Young and forward John Collins.
