Here are the achievers of 2018:

Mike Conley Is Hard at Work for the Bears Mike Conley had the largest deal in NBA when he signed his most recent deal but now he ranks 7th on our listing backed by his $28.5 million annual pay from the Memphis Grizzlies.
Russell Westbrook Also Nabs 7th Place On the same spot with Conley is Oklahoma City Thunder’s, Russell Westbrook guaranteed to earn a cool amount of $28.5 million a year.
Kyle Lowry’s Playing Big For The Raptors Kyle is doing great on the court and his Toronto Raptors team is happy to shell out $28.7 million a year. Giving his team an amazing average of 22.4 points per game, who wouldn’t be thrilled?
James Harden’s Salary Skyrockets The Houston Rockets are generous to pay $28.3 million every year for James Harden. Scoring an average of 29.1 points a game, we won’t be surprised if he’ll be an Olympic candidate by 2020.
