Marcin Gortat Net Worth $11.5 Million
Gortat was interested in sports from an early age – his father, Janusz was a boxer and won bronze as a light heavyweight at the Munich 1972 and Montreal 1976 Olympics, and his mother, Alicja played volleyball for Poland. As a child, Marcin participated in sports such as track and field, and soccer. He spent his formative years in Łódź, alongside his brother, where he was educated at Technical School, reportedly becoming fluent in German, Serbian and English. He began his basketball career playing for ŁKS Łódź, and went on to play for RheinEnergie in Germany for three season. In 2005, he was selected as the 57th overall pick in the NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns, however, he kept playing with RheinEnergie for two more years.
In 2007, he was traded to and signed a contract with the Orlando Magic, and in late November of the same year, he was assigned to the Anaheim Arsenal, but was recalled from the G-League in early December of that year, and went on to make his debut for the Magic in early March 2008, participating in a game against the New York Knicks. In mid-April 2008, he played for the total of eight minutes scoring 12 points with 11 rebounds, being a significant addition to his team which won 103-83. In late April of the same year, he played in his first playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers, Marcin’s team winning with 4-2.
However, in July 2009 Gortat became a free agent, and wanted to sign a five-year $34 million contract with the Dallas Mavericks, however, the Magic matched the offer, so he continued playing for the mentioned team, but was reportedly disappointed, as he continuously had limited playing time, and was a backup player for Dwight Howard. Eventually in December 2010, Marcin was traded to the Phoenix Suns alongside players Mickaël Piétrus and Vince Carter. In his new team, Marcin had more playing time, and he was starting at center, becoming popular under the nickname ‘’The Polish Hammer’’. In 2011-12 season, he had an average of 10.0 rebounds per game and 15.4 points, and at season’s end joined the Polish national basketball team attempting to qualify for the FIBA EuroBasket, scoring 27 points during his second game against Finland.
In November 2012, he had 10 rebounds, scored 23 points and additionally had a career high seven blocks in his team’s 117-110 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. In October of the following year, he was traded to the Washington Wizard, and in late February 2014, he had a career-high 12 rebounds and 31 points, leading his team to a victory against the Toronto Raptors. On 13 May, Marcin helped his team avoid elimination in game five of the play-offs, recording 16 rebounds and 31 points. Another highlight was Marcin being named Eastern Conference Player of the Week in late December, collectively doing his potential net worth no harm at all.
When it comes to his private life, Marcin is in a relationship with Anya Gortat Marcin. He is active on social media such as Twitter and Instagram and is followed by 147,000 people on the former and 137,000 on the latter..
