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.

Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-2 / Team: Indiana
15.3 ppg, 7.8 apg, 4.0 rpg

Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: New York

Team Option / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: Chicago

Career Earnings: $70,282,884
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-0 / Team: San Antonio

Career Earnings: $41,764,378
Team Option / Point Guard / 6-0 / Team: Dallas
10.0 ppg, 3.7 apg

Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: Cleveland

Career Earnings: $135,749,509
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-0 / Team: Sacramento

Career Earnings: $23,343,141
Restricted / Point Guard / 6-6 / Team: Chicago

Career Earnings: $10,083,526
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-5 / Team: CSKA Moscow (Russia)
16.3 ppg, 7.2 apg

Agent: Nick Lotsos
2016/17 Earnings: $0
Career Earnings: $0
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: Washington
7.1 ppg, 4.9 apg

Career Earnings: $6,280,821
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: Philadelphia

Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: LA Clippers
6.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg

The Clippers’ net rating was -14.9 when he was on the floor, which probably had something to do with being a backup to point god Chris Paul.

Career Earnings: $50,305,743
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-3 / Team: Atlanta

Career Earnings: $44,142,820
Restricted / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: Washington
5.0 ppg, 1.8 apg

Career Earnings: $22,838,814
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-2 / Team: Memphis

Career Earnings: $9,479,460
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-1 / Team: Charlotte
3.5 ppg, 1.3 apg

Career Earnings: $7,900,377
Unrestricted / Point Guard / 6-2 / Team: Phoenix
