3. Jayson Tatum — 2023-24 Salary: $32.6 Million
At 25 years old, Jayson Tatum continues to be one of the NBA’s best players. The Boston fan favorite averaged 30.1 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists while shooting .466/.350/.854 last season, earning him his second straight All-NBA First-Team appearance.
Reading those stats alone, you’d think that Tatum was one of the highest-paid players in the league. Instead, he’s only on the books for a cool $32.6 million — tied with Bam Adebayo and De’Aaron Fox for the 37th-highest salary, per HoopsHype.
In other words, Boston is paying top-40 money for a top-five player. It’s hard to find a better value than that across the league.
The impressive thing is that Tatum is showing no signs of slowing down. His point, rebound and assist totals have increased with each passing season and he’s still young enough that we might not have even seen the best that he has to offer yet.
Adding to the value is the fact that DraftKings Sportsbook lists Tatum as having the fifth-best odds (+900) to be named the 2023-24 NBA MVP. If he can prove that he is, in fact, the Association’s best player, his contract will look even better until his player option comes up in 2025.
Until he inevitably secures the bag on his next deal, Tatum’s contract is arguably the best in the NBA.
