There is nothing like big money to provide a little incentive.
The 2013 NBA free-agent class will be full of players who deserve max deals and others who are striving to get one.
Players like Chris Paul, Andrew Bynum and Dwight Howard are the big free-agent names who will get a max deal next season as long as they are upright. Others have a thing or two to prove to get the most out of their new deal.
Here are six players who are set up for a big season and who will end up making NBA owners wish for another lockout.
Kidding! (I hope.)
