The Top 50 highest paid players for the 2022/23 season

It’s summer and HoopsRumors has therefore delved into the accounting books of the various NBA franchises.

The opportunity to draw up the Top 50 players who will be the best paid next season. Stephen Curry is in the lead, while Golden State places three other players (Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green).

The Lakers only place three, but they are all in the Top 12.

Only one Frenchman in the ranking, and it is obviously Rudy Gobert, in 11th place, just ahead of Anthony Davis.

Note that HoopsRumors does not include John Wall in this Top 50, even if he activated his “player option” ($47,366,760) because he was cut and his salary will be stretched and he will therefore be paid over three year. This means that he will really receive “only” 20 million dollars during the next campaign.
