Andrew Wiggins: 4-year, $148 million contract extension (2017)
It’s not that Andrew Wiggins is a “bad player,” per se. And his contract isn’t as horrifically egregious as some others you might find on this list. But the fact of the matter remains the same: Wiggins base salary ($25M+ per year) is among the 20 highest contracts in the NBA at the moment, meaning he’s making more money than a whole slew of All-Stars.
And what has Wiggins accomplished since he arrived in the NBA to deserve that type of money, outside of being the #1 overall pick (thanks to his combination of talents that, one could argue, remain far from being completely unlocked).
