Gortat, 30, averaged 13.2 points and 9.5 rebounds last season for the Wizards while helping them reach the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Gortat's extension is comparable to the deal Minnesota gave its center, Nikola Pekovic, a year ago: five years, $60 million.
The Wizards will turn their attention to re-signing free-agent forward Trevor Ariza. Wizards coach Randy Wittman met with Ariza in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
