Stephen Curry is the highest paid at a whopping $43 million. The 32-year-old returns to the court after minimal play last season in hopes of redeeming the Golden State Warriors and online betting success once again. Curry is currently under a five-year $201.16 million deal he signed in 2017 with current contract extension negotiations in talks.

LeBron James is the sixth highest-paid NBA player coming in at $39.2 million. James recently signed a two-year $85 million contract extension with the Lakers earlier this month, assuring him 20-years in the NBA and the potential to have a chance to play with his son Bronny. James will be a free agent the year he graduates high school.

John Wall is tied for the fourth highest-paid player in the league at $42.2, despite not playing a game in two years and fans unable to include him in basketball odds.

Kevin Durant returns to the court with the Brooklyn Nets this season after recovering from a ruptured Achilles tear last season. The two-time NBA Finals MVP is currently the seventh highest-paid player in the NBA, making $39 million this year. Durant was offered $31.5 to return to Golden State but ultimately opted for a four year $164 million deal with Brooklyn.

Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo recently signed a five-year contract extension with the Milwaukee Bucks, making him the highest-paid player in NBA history at $228.2 million during that span. The five-year average puts him at $45.6 million per year, and he is expected to make $51.9 million in 2026.
