The Cleveland Cavaliers exercised their fourth-year contract option on center Evan Mobley for the 2024-25 season.

Mobley signed a four-year, $36.7 million rookie deal after being selected third overall in the 2021 NBA Draft.

The 7-footer is set to earn $8.9 million this season and will take home $11.2 million in 2024-25, per Spotrac.

Mobley, 22, averaged 16.2 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.5 blocks in 79 games (all starts) last season.

He finished third in the Defensive Player of the Year voting and made the NBA All-Defensive first team.

Mobley and the Cavaliers open the 2023-24 regular season next Wednesday against the Nets in Brooklyn.
