The back-to-back MVP hits free agency in 2017 and he’s a mortal lock to get a maximum contract. With the Warriors rolling, it’s hard to picture him leaving the Bay Area anytime soon.

Player Option / Point Guard / 6-0 / Last team: LA Clippers

Chris Paul is on the wrong side of 30, but suitors will line up for his services regardless. You would expect him to lose a step by now. It hasn’t happened yet.

Career Earnings: $160,388,983
Player Option / Point Guard / 6-0 / Last team: Toronto

Career Earnings: $64,757,917
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-4 / Last team: New Orleans

The always reliable Hill is having his best year on the offensive end so far. Has missed a lot of games, though.

Career Earnings: $38,863,717
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Last team: New York
18.1 ppg, 4.5 apg

His play has been solid if unspectacular in New York. Didn’t help himself by going AWOL before a game vs. New Orleans.

Career Earnings: $116,861,524
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-0 / Last team: San Antonio

Career Earnings: $10,655,958
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-7 / Last team: Golden State

Career Earnings: $41,764,378

Shoot first, pass second guard who’s not shooting the ball very well.

Career Earnings: $6,280,821
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Last team: Dallas
