NBA Salaries by team, Who really makes the best out of their money


Bench Warmer
Below are the salaries of all the NBA teams based on information from What teams do you think have really used their money wisely? I like the Hornets. They are 19th in payroll yet have one of the most interesting and exciting teams in the league. They are also one of the most competive teams in the strong western conference. Teams that I think are failing would be the Mavs, Knicks, Nuggets, and Blazers as all teams are performing poorly for the amount they are paying out.

1. Dallas Mavericks
2. New York Knicks
3. Denver Nuggets
4. Cleveland Cavaliers
5. Boston Celtics
6. Portland Trail Blazers
7. Miami Heat
8. Los Angeles Lakers
9. Phoenix Suns
10. Philadelphia 76ers
11. Houston Rockets
12. San Antonio Spurs
13. Minnesota Timberwolves
14. New Jersey Nets
15. Washington Wizards
16. Indiana Pacers
17. Golden State Warriors
18. Detroit Pistons
19. New Orleans Hornets
20. Los Angeles Clippers
21. Sacramento Kings
22. Chicago Bulls
23. Milwaukee Bucks
24. Toronto Raptors
25. Seattle SuperSonics
26. Utah Jazz
27. Orlando Magic
28. Atlanta Hawks
29. Memphis Grizzlies
30. Charlotte Bobcats
28. Atlanta Hawks

Detroit at 18 is pretty impressive. They have a very good shot at winning it all with a (relatively) low payroll.

I have to agree. Detroit is a perennial contender, with a bottom half pay roll.

Utah, NO & Orlando will change soon, with Deron Williams, Chris Paul, & Dwight Howard getting a large pay raise soon.

On a side note, it sure is nice to see the Blazers down to $74M For quite a few years they were up around $125M:eek:
I think the Mavs are worse then the Knicks. I mean they spend 17 million dollars more then all other teams. Heck they spend $35 million more than the spurs and they cannot beat them when it matters.
