Which player do you think is the best value for what they get paid and what their production is?


I would say Chris Andersen. He gets paid the minimum (a little under $800,000) and this season he averaged 6.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks and provides great energy and defense off the bench for the Nuggets.

tough to top that, maybe you could count Derrick Rose as a best value candidate because if there wasn't a rookie cap then he would be making a ton of money instead of the designated money that he's allowed to make

Wow, I didn't know that. That's pretty rediculous to have a player like that making less than a mil.

It's because he's still under his rookie deal. He will be getting a pretty big raise this offseason.

Yeah, we've had similar threads to this before, and I think it's always worth differentiating the rookie contracts that of course are of a predetermined amount, and the contracts that were negotiated via free agency.

The OP's choice of the Birdman what what immediately came to mind for me. But I think you could even add to that and say (even though the other two guys really don't deserve much more than the minimum), that Denver gets the best minimum salary player production of any team in the league with Andersen (who is 2nd in blocks in the league at only 19 minutes), Anthony Carter (who gets the most assists of any player in the league who averages fewer than 24 minutes), and Dahntay Jones (who is a scrub talent-wise but is becoming a formidable defender - see the bang-up job he's doing on CP3 in that series).

if he wasn't sniffing that booger sugar he would be making more but he needs to redeem himself first (he is doing a good job at that)

Rajon Rondo :)

He is making under 2 million this season. He will make 2.09 next season. There are 303 players in the NBA paid more than him.

Playoff stats

24 ppg. 10.5 reb, 11.5 ***,3.5 steals,1 to.

For a guy making under 2 million, i think thats a great value.

I think teams should pay me $500,000/year. I'll just come into the first game of the first round of the playoffs, run toward the MVP on the opposing team, and take out his knee. Other than that, Paul Milsap.

Gooden was bought out though. Technically he's making 4 or 5 mil I think.

I consider any legit superstar (Kobe, Lebron, Wade, Dwight, CP3) a value player. As long as he's not playing with another superstar, making superstar money, they are the best value of any player.

Why? Superstars draw crowds and make up for more than their salary in revenue generated.

That's true, and we all know that, but not really what the thread is about.
