NBA players earn minutes for reasons that do not include on-court production.
The five players on this list are only getting the minutes they do this season because of their massive contracts.
For as bad as a contract might be, however, I did not include players who are also averaging at least 10 points per game this year.
It is the 15 points per game that Ben Gordon is averaging, for example, that kept him and his contract off this list.
I also only included players who are currently healthy.
Meaning, if Hedo Turkoglu played more than one game, he'd have been recognized. Tyrus Thomas would have too if he wasn't out for an extended period right now.
The players that were included are appearing in games regularly, being paid handsomely and not doing much while they're out there.
