NBA Team Salaries for 2012-2013

Published on August 26th, 2012 by David Astramskas | 33,663 views



Doing my best Keanu Reeves’ “Whoa” when looking at a few of these apples especially the Lakers almost hitting $100 million and equaling The Cavs and Rockets combined.  To the Lakers defense, they also have more talent than the Cavs and Rockets combined.

The reason LA’s is so high is because of the following

  • Kobe – $27,849,000 ($30 million next year)
  • Dwight – $19,261,200
  • Gasol – $19,000,000
  • Nash – $8,900,000
  • Metta – $7,258,960
Jamison is a real steal on the team at only $1,352,181 especially considering they are going to pay Steve Blake $4 million.
