Highest-paid players in the NBA

The NBA has a unique ability to have shape-shifting summers almost every year, and the 2019 offseason has certainly been no exception. With players often signing short-term contracts or long-term deals that include an opt-out clause, the culture has become one of total player empowerment: The stars have a say of where, with whom, and for how much they would like to play. So, last month some of the league’s biggest names chose their new homes and formed new partnerships with fellow all-stars in what was yet another eventful July in NBA free agency.

There’s the new duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, who will each pull in north of $30 million this season to try to revitalize the Nets franchise that has been doomed since the infamous trade with the Boston Celtics in 2013. DeAndre Jordan followed Durant and Irving to Brooklyn in the hopes to form an Eastern Conference superteam.

With Irving’s arrival to the Nets and the Warriors left with plenty of money as a result of Durant’s departure, Brooklyn’s All-Star guard D’Angelo Russell traded the Empire State for the Golden State, as he joined the Warriors in a high-profile restricted free-agent signing that lands him amongst some of the league’s best in terms of his earnings this coming season.

Then there’s Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, who have teamed up in Los Angeles to turn the Clippers into a contender in the very same building in which LeBron James and Anthony Davis will be grabbing Hollywood headlines night in and night out with the Lakers.

Of course, despite all the money being thrown around in free agency, there is still a handful of “face of the franchise” players who are happily entering yet another year of their previously signed max contracts that earn them eye-popping wages.

With all of that said, it’s time to look at where these stars rank amongst their peers in terms of what they will make in the 2019-20 season. Stacker compiled a list of the highest-paid NBA players using data from Spotrac. Players are ranked by their 2019 salary-cap hit and ties are broken by career earnings.

#35. Anthony Davis

- Team: Los Angeles Lakers
- Position: PF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,093,019
- Total contract value: $127,171,313
- Career earnings: $121,617,548

It seemed like a long time coming, but Anthony Davis finally became a Laker after the Pelicans agreed to a trade that brought Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and three first-round picks back to New Orleans this past June. A cap hit of just over $27 million could be a bargain if Davis can stay healthy and continue his dominance that has seen him average a double-double for his career and earn All-NBA First Team honors three times (2015, 2017, 2018).

#34. Otto Porter Jr.

- Team: Chicago Bulls
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,250,575
- Total contract value: $106,524,975
- Career earnings: $97,341,159

While Otto Porter Jr. will be pulling in a large lump sum of cash from the Bulls this season, it was the Wizards who signed him to his current four-year, $106.5 million contract before eventually trading him to Chicago last February. In his 15 starts with the Bulls following the trade, Porter Jr. averaged 17.5 points per game, which would be a career-high scoring average over the course of a full season for him if he can keep contributing at that rate.

#33. Devin Booker

- Team: Phoenix Suns
- Position: SG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,285,000
- Total contract value: $158,253,000
- Career earnings: $37,270,165

During the 2018-19 season, Devin Booker led the Phoenix Suns in points per game (26.6), assists per game (6.8) and minutes (35). He has been nothing short of spectacular since being drafted in 2015 and for that the team rewarded him with a five-year, $158 million contract extension this last offseason. At just 22 years old, Booker still has plenty of room to grow and should he do so, his current cap hit of $27 million could seem like a bargain when looking back on it.

#32. Kristaps Porzingis

- Team: Dallas Mavericks
- Position: PF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,285,000
- Total contract value: $158,253,000
- Career earnings: $45,935,094

Drafted as the fourth overall pick in the same 2015 draft that shepherded Devin Booker to the league, it was also time for Kristaps Porzingis to be rewarded with his second contract at the expiration of his rookie deal. Only it didn’t end up being with the New York Knicks, where he played his first four injury-plagued seasons for a still-lost franchise that instead opted to trade the Latvian to Dallas. Now, Porzingis enters the first year of a brand new deal with the Mavericks that is basically identical to the deal that Booker signed with the Suns. The primary difference is that the Mavericks are yet to see what Porzingis can do in a Dallas uniform and are taking a gamble that he will return from a torn ACL, which he suffered with the Knicks, to a healthy and impactful star.

#31. D'Angelo Russell

- Team: Golden State Warriors
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,285,000
- Total contract value: $117,325,500
- Career earnings: $50,302,978

D’Angelo Russell could be the perfect example of the domino effect of big free-agent signings throughout the NBA. With Kevin Durant leaving the Warriors and teaming up with Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn, it rendered the All-Star lefty point guard expendable. So, on came the same Warriors with newly opened cap space to make a restricted free-agent bid for Russell, adding depth to a backcourt that was in need of it—Klay Thompson continues to heal from a torn ACL that will keep him out most of the 2019-20 season. Russell dazzled in Brooklyn, averaging 21.1 points per game and 7.0 assists last season, but that was with the ball in his hands quite frequently as the Nets’ primary threat. Now, he is surrounded by talent in Golden State and in a system where almost every player seems to thrive. Perhaps that could be just what is needed to elevate Russell to the next tier of stardom.

#30. Karl-Anthony Towns

- Team: Minnesota Timberwolves
- Position: C
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,285,000
- Total contract value: $158,253,000
- Career earnings: $53,005,035

The class of 2015 made out really well this summer, and as the first overall selection of that draft, it was inevitable that Karl-Anthony Towns would be rewarded handsomely by the Timberwolves. Towns continues to come into his own and has been named an All-Star the past two seasons while also cracking the All-NBA Third team in 2018. A lucrative contract for Towns was, without a doubt, the sensible move for Minnesota. He has been a model of consistency, posting career averages of 22.3 points and 11.9 rebounds and will be the centerpiece of whatever the franchise does in the immediate future.

#29. Nikola Jokic

- Team: Denver Nuggets
- Position: C
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,435,665
- Total contract value: $147,710,050
- Career earnings: $57,032,798

Like the aforementioned Towns, Nikola Jokic is a walking double-double. Last year, he posted his best scoring average of his career, logging 20.1 points per game to go along with a career-best rebound average of 10.8. Entering the second-year of a $147.7 million deal, expectations for Jokic remain high as he is a vital part of a Nuggets team that surprised many last season by winning 54 regular-season games and finishing just three games behind the Warriors for the top seed in the Western Conference.

#28. Joel Embiid

- Team: Philadelphia 76ers
- Position: C
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,504,630
- Total contract value: $147,710,050
- Career earnings: $72,952,906

With Joel Embiid, the question of whether or not he would be great always hinged on whether he could remain healthy enough to play. In 2018-19, Embiid left little doubt that he is a true superstar in today’s NBA. He put together his best season and posted game averages of 27.5 points (fourth in the NBA), 13.6 rebounds (second in the NBA) and 1.9 blocks. Now, he will look to lead Philadelphia past the Eastern Conference Semifinals, where they fell to the eventual NBA champion Raptors last season; doing so for $27.5 million this coming year is a more-than-manageable figure for Philadelphia to handle.

#27. Andrew Wiggins

- Team: Minnesota Timberwolves
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,504,630
- Total contract value: $147,710,050
- Career earnings: $77,822,123

Andrew Wiggins has the benefit being on the second year of his second contract as opposed to the first, so an escalating salary has him earning just slightly more than his teammate Karl-Anthony Towns. Wiggins looks to continue to elevate his play along with his dollar value, as he has been a solid scoring option (18.1 points per game in 2018-19) but may need to increase his usual output if the Timberwolves are to get back into the position of a contender in the Western Conference.

#26. C. J. McCollum

- Team: Portland Blazers
- Position: SG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,556,959
- Total contract value: $106,633,449
- Career earnings: $60,204,797

As one-half of a dynamic backcourt duo in Portland, C. J. McCollum has consistently contributed for the consistently surprising Trailblazers. He provides yet another valid scoring option and can help create defensive mismatches for opponents who are busy worrying about Damian Lillard. With Portland advancing to the Western Conference Finals last year, should they continue to get value out of McCollum at $27.5 million, it would be hard to argue he is not worth it.

#25. DeMar DeRozan

- Team: San Antonio Spurs
- Position: SG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $27,739,975
- Total contract value: $139,000,000
- Career earnings: $149,703,600

DeMar DeRozan’s first season in San Antonio saw his scoring average drop but his assist and rebound output reach career highs. Perhaps that could be because of the team-oriented brand of basketball for which the Spurs are known, but it is hard not to feel bad for DeRozan having to see the man he replaced, Kawhi Leonard, win a championship with the franchise he gave nine solid seasons to. If the Spurs can’t come back from their first-round playoff exit last season, it may be reasonable to think DeRozan as a centerpiece—no matter the system—may not work long-term.

#24. Nikola Vucevic

- Team: Orlando Magic
- Position: C
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $28,000,000
- Total contract value: $100,000,000
- Career earnings: $84,088,639

The Orlando Magic earned the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs last season and that was, in large part, due to Nikola Vucevic’s 20.8 points and 12.0 rebounds. With this in mind, the Magic dished out a four-year $100 million contract that will see him earn $28 million this coming season, the first year of the deal. If the Magic can remain relevant and crack the top eight in the East again, it will be a worthy investment.

#23. Al Horford

- Team: Philadelphia 76ers
- Position: C
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $28,000,000
- Total contract value: $109,000,000
- Career earnings: $186,386,768

Jimmy Butler’s departure to the Miami Heat meant there was some money to throw around in Philadelphia, and that the 76ers needed more talent around their young core of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Enter the 33-year-old Al Horford with vast experience the 76ers hope can prove valuable in the postseason—where they have their eyes on an Eastern Conference title and more.

#22. Kevin Love

- Team: Cleveland Cavaliers
- Position: C
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $28,942,830
- Total contract value: $120,402,172
- Career earnings: $174,553,849

Sometimes being the last man standing can have its positives. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are long departed, but the Cleveland Cavaliers need to fill out a roster and try to compete, so the still-great Kevin Love earned himself a four-year, $120 million contract for his loyalty and—as the Cavaliers are clearly banking on—his continued stellar scoring and rebounding.

#21. Damian Lillard

- Team: Portland Blazers
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $29,802,321
- Total contract value: $139,888,445
- Career earnings: $122,106,658

Damian Lillard is a bonafide superstar and has continued to propel the Trailblazers to new heights. Having signed a "supermax" contract, there is no question that Lillard is worth the near-$30 million cap hit that he will cost Portland this season. Having him under contract and happy with his situation is priority #1 for the front office, which continues to build a contender without the high-profile free agents that counterparts like the Lakers and the Clippers continue to accumulate.

#20. Paul Millsap

- Team: Denver Nuggets
- Position: PF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $30,350,000
- Total contract value: $90,000,000
- Career earnings: $181,245,742

Paul Millsap is a seasoned veteran and still a contributor for the highly competitive Nuggets. However, he is now 34 years old and entering the final season of his three-year, $90 million contract and saw his minutes and scoring averages decline last season. It may be hard to count on Millsap to be anything near a “bang for your buck” player this late in his career, but given that it is his final year and that the Nuggets have plenty of young talent around him, it certainly isn’t the type of contract that is hamstringing the franchise.

#19. Khris Middleton

- Team: Milwaukee Bucks
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $30,603,448
- Total contract value: $177,500,000
- Career earnings: $89,781,167

Khris Middleton isn’t the type of player who garners a lot of headlines, and the Bucks certainly don’t need him to be. They have 2018-19 MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo for that. But a five-year, $177.5 million contract to keep Middleton as the Robin to Antetokounmpo’s Batman is a smart investment. He’s a reliable shooter and perimeter threat—he shot 44.1% from the field and 37.8% from three—and with Giannis being so much of a slashing threat, Middleton will continue to get opportunities to score as defenders collapse toward the lane to attempt the seemingly impossible task of stopping the reigning MVP.

#18. Kyrie Irving

- Team: Brooklyn Nets
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $31,742,000
- Total contract value: $136,490,600
- Career earnings: $126,949,624

True Nets fans have been long-suffering; watching other franchises turn their draft assets they traded away in 2013 into stars has been incredibly hard. However, they’ve been rewarded with a renaissance of basketball in Brooklyn that seems destined to render the Knicks the “other” team in New York. Kyrie Irving is still one of the game’s best point guards, and there really isn’t a price in the current NBA landscape that is too much to pay. That’s even truer when he is paired with Kevin Durant, who will look to return to health in time to turn Brooklyn into title contenders.

#17. Mike Conley

- Team: Utah Jazz
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $32,511,623
- Total contract value: $152,605,576
- Career earnings: $141,106,207

The Jazz traded for Mike Conley this offseason, and in bringing him from Memphis to Utah, they will inherit the contract that has the 31-year-old poised to earn a $32.5 million figure this season. While missing all but 12 games in 2017-18, Conley returned from injury last season and posted the best scoring average of his career (21.1). He still has plenty to give as he is set to play out the final two years of his current contract in Utah.

#16. Gordon Hayward

- Team: Boston Celtics
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $32,700,690
- Total contract value: $127,829,970
- Career earnings: $150,428,542

It’s hard to pinpoint Gordon Hayward’s on-court value to the Boston Celtics—although he is entering the third year of the four-year deal he signed. His first season in 2017 was a wash, as he suffered a gruesome injury in the season-opener that kept him out the entire season. Last season, he started just 18 of his 72 games and was well-aware that an injury as significant as his could be career-altering. It felt as though the move to Boston to play alongside Kyrie Irving was exactly the type to elevate Hayward, but now that seems like a distant memory.

#15. Kemba Walker

- Team: Boston Celtics
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $32,742,000
- Total contract value: $140,790,600
- Career earnings: $90,941,401

Losing Kyrie Irving as your starting point guard leaves some large shoes to fill. The 6-foot-1 Kemba Walker may be the exact guy for the challenge. Walker has long been rumored to leave the Hornets, and after posting a career-high 25.6 points per game last season—and earning a third All-Star Game selection—he seized the perfect opportunity to enter free agency and sign a lucrative contract. Boston should prove to be a good change of scenery for Walker, who will now enjoy coaching from one of the game’s best in Brad Stevens, and the chance to play alongside Jayson Tatum.

#14. Tobias Harris

- Team: Philadelphia 76ers
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $32,742,000
- Total contract value: $180,000,000
- Career earnings: $103,291,880

After being traded to the 76ers last February, Tobias Harris then signed a new contract to remain with Philadelphia in free agency this summer. Harris saw essentially no drop-off in performance since moving from the Clippers to the 76ers, and will be a significant piece to a team that has championship aspirations.

#13. Klay Thompson

- Team: Golden State Warriors
- Position: SG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $32,742,000
- Total contract value: $189,903,600
- Career earnings: $111,048,999

As far as cap hits for 2019 go, Klay Thompson’s earnings can just be chalked up as a wash for the Warriors due to his ACL injury which will keep him out almost the entire year. However, his invaluable contributions during their three NBA Championship runs proved more than enough for Golden State, and they did the smart thing in locking him up to a new long-term deal and securing the backcourt duo of he and Stephen Curry for the rest of their prime playing years.

#12. Jimmy Butler

- Team: Miami Heat
- Position: SG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $32,742,000
- Total contract value: $140,790,600
- Career earnings: $112,063,006

The Miami Heat were arguably the reason that the climate in NBA free agency changed so dramatically. While they enjoyed two title runs with their Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, they remain in a rebuilding mode. Butler will be the centerpiece now, as he comes to Miami as their big catch this offseason to put the team in contention for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

#11. Kawhi Leonard

- Team: Los Angeles Clippers
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $32,742,000
- Total contract value: $103,137,300
- Career earnings: $116,756,010

It’s hard to drive up your value any more than Kawhi Leonard did last season with the Toronto Raptors. His 26.6 scoring average jumped up to 30.5 in the postseason where he led the Raptors to their first NBA title by beating the Warriors in six games. Raptors faithful will forever be grateful to Leonard, who is a proven champion with multiple franchises and now looks to lead a rejuvenation of the Clippers franchise along with Paul George.

#10. Paul George

- Team: Los Angeles Clippers
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $33,005,556
- Total contract value: $136,911,936
- Career earnings: $144,467,045

Perhaps the worst-kept secret in the NBA was that Paul George wanted to return to his hometown and play for Los Angeles. It was mostly assumed that meant teaming up with LeBron James and the Lakers; instead it’s the younger Kawhi Leonard with the Clippers. For L.A., dishing out the dollar figures they now owe both Leonard and George will only become a failed investment if they don’t seriously contend for the Western Conference title. With Kevin Durant leaving the Warriors for Brooklyn, it’s a race to see who can overtake Golden State as the top dog out west, and the Clippers made significant strides in doing so.

#9. Blake Griffin

- Team: Detroit Pistons
- Position: PF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $34,449,964
- Total contract value: $171,174,820
- Career earnings: $192,256,894

A stellar regular season from Blake Griffin helped the Pistons grab the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference last season, but injuries hampered him throughout their first-round series against the top-seeded Bucks as they were swept in four games. The Pistons hope that Griffin can continue to perform at his All-Star level of last year into his early 30s to lead the way in their efforts to become postseason regulars.

#8. Kyle Lowry

- Team: Toronto Raptors
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $34,996,296
- Total contract value: $100,000,000
- Career earnings: $160,035,966

Having signed only a three-year deal with the Raptors in 2017, Kyle Lowry already enters the final year of his current contract this season. Of course, doing so off the heels of an NBA Championship is preferred, but losing Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers means that Toronto isn’t likely to be a contender this season. If Lowry is to prove that false on his own—without another major superstar by his side—the Raptors will be more than happy to hand over a hefty $35 million to him this season and start talking about an extension.

#7. LeBron James

- Team: Los Angeles Lakers
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $37,436,858
- Total contract value: $153,312,846
- Career earnings: $306,984,009

There really isn’t much convincing needed when it comes to LeBron James’ value to an NBA franchise. Sure, his injury-plagued first season with the Lakers didn’t result in postseason basketball, but it’d be hard to argue that LeBron’s coming to L.A. wasn’t about the long game to begin with. They’ve now got Anthony Davis in tow and still possess one of the most influential players and biggest brands in all of sports.

#6. John Wall

- Team: Washington Wizards
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $38,199,000
- Total contract value: $171,131,520
- Career earnings: $145,959,625

John Wall may just have a year off in 2019. He said this spring, via the Associated Press, that the Achilles injury he suffered last season may put his entire 2019-20 in jeopardy. That’s a tough break for the Wizards franchise, which still invested in Wall with a four-year, $171 million contract extension—and which is coming off an abysmal 32-50, injury-plagued season.

#5. James Harden

- Team: Houston Rockets
- Position: SG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $38,199,000
- Total contract value: $171,131,520
- Career earnings: $185,482,251

A perennial MVP candidate, even a $38 million cap hit is a bargain for James Harden. He took his affinity for filling up the score sheet to a new level last season, dropping an astounding 36.1 points per game, a full 8.1 points clear of the league’s second-leading scorer, Paul George (28.0). Only two players have ever surpassed that scoring figure in a single season: Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan. It’s hard to imagine Harden duplicating a season like that, especially with Russell Westbrook joining the Rockets and requiring the ball in his hands, but Harden has made many doubters look foolish.

#4. Kevin Durant

- Team: Brooklyn Nets
- Position: SF
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $38,199,000
- Total contract value: $164,255,700
- Career earnings: $225,382,333

While all of Kevin Durant’s first season with the Nets may not be a wasted one, a ruptured Achilles tendon will no doubt mean that most of 2019-20 will see him as a spectator to the new-look brand of Brooklyn basketball. When he returns, it’s hard to imagine him not turning the Nets into an instant contender having seen the way he turned the Warriors into a seemingly unstoppable force. If not for his injury during the 2019 NBA Finals, the Warriors may have been entering this season on the heels of a three-peat as champs, and perhaps Durant’s exit would not have been as inevitable.

#3. Russell Westbrook

- Team: Houston Rockets
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $38,506,482
- Total contract value: $206,794,070
- Career earnings: $205,415,040

Russell Westbrook’s season will be must-see basketball. After a blockbuster deal saw him go to Houston in exchange for Chris Paul, Westbrook will now be reunited with former Thunder teammate James Harden, who has also won an MVP since they last played together. Will the two of them paired in the same backcourt mean even wilder numbers posted from each? Or will their numbers take a hit as they share the limelight as two ball-dominant players? This will be a basketball experiment for the ages, and an expensive one at that.

#2. Chris Paul

- Team: Oklahoma City Thunder
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $38,506,482
- Total contract value: $159,730,592
- Career earnings: $260,957,260

On the opposite side of that same Westbrook trade, Chris Paul now joins a Thunder team that no longer has Paul George on the roster. Paul will now make the second-most money of any player this season as the 34-year-old veteran on a team that doesn’t have a true second superstar, but rather several role players. With three more seasons left on his current contract, including cap hits north of $40 million beginning in 2020-21, Paul may ease his way into retirement nicely as the focal point of an offense despite his age.

#1. Stephen Curry

- Team: Golden State Warriors
- Position: PG
- 2019 Salary-cap hit: $40,231,758
- Total contract value: $201,158,790
- Career earnings: $168,463,505

He’s a three-time champion, two-time MVP, and while he has nothing left to prove in terms of the astronomical contract he earned from the Warriors, 2019-20 will still be a great challenge for Stephen Curry. With Durant opting to leave and join the Nets, and Thompson missing most of this coming season, Curry now finds himself in a role where he will once again be “the guy” and a key figure in helping D’Angelo Russell’s transition to Golden State. If the Warriors can survive the pieces they lost through free agency and injury and remain the top team in the Western Conference, it will be because of their $40 million man.
