The best bets and resources to make you more profitable
The NBA is one of the most profitable sports in the world. Given its popularity worldwide, the stars of the game are paid some of the largest annual salaries of any profession. Many of these players are nearing the end of their contract period, so expect to see a new list of top-paid players in the next couple of years.
This past offseason, Curry became the first player to sign an extension after a supermax extension, re-signing with the Warriors for an additional four years and $215 million. Kevin Durant signed an extension with the Brooklyn Nets this summer, extending him through 2026. Trae Young, Luka Doncic and Michael Porter Jr. all signed the biggest rookie extensions in NBA history: $207 million over five years apiece.
