7 Best Bang-for-Buck Players in the NBA This Season

Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo

There is a select group of NBA players outperforming their contracts this season to a point where it's almost criminal. 

While players like Kyrie Irving and Damian Lillard are certainly underpaid—along with others who are outperforming their rookie contacts—each player on this list has signed at least one contract since his rookie deal expired.

Because an NBA player cannot earn more than a maximum contract, this list also excludes any max player who might be providing more value than what they're actually getting paid.

Included on this list, then, is a collection of stars, starters and role players.

They were all included based on their current salary and where they rank in terms of individual production during the 2012-13 season. The length of their contracts after this season was also considered to varying degrees. 

None of the players on this list are earning a salary that ranks among the top 50 in the NBA this season, but all have provided major value to their respective teams.

 


Note: Players listed according to current salary, not in ranked order.
