Relegated to a bench role, Amar'e Stoudemire is now one of the league's most overpaid players.

Long-term success in the NBA is hard to come by, but owners and general managers can help sustain prosperity well into the future with savvy financial dealings. 

Whether it's locking up a young prospect early at a nice rate or picking up quality veteran talent at a reduced rate, there are a number of moves that the league's top-rate franchises repeatedly make in pursuit of championships. 

There's also the flip side, when team management doesn't take the financially prudent route. Whether it's signing a big name whose game isn't deserving of a big payday or simply overpaying for role players, we've seen how far franchises can be set back. 

For the purposes of this slideshow, first-round draft picks who are still on their rookie deals were exempt for the simple reason that their salaries are determined by the rookie wage scale. Second-round picks, however, were considered because they receive no guaranteed money.
