Career Earnings: $43,794,434
Unrestricted / Shooting Guard / 6-6 / Last team: Sacramento Kings

11.1 ppg, 4.9 apg (Eurocup)

Career Earnings: $80,904,717
Unrestricted / Power Forward / 6-9 / Last team: Miami Heat

Career Earnings: $7,745,380
Unrestricted / Small Forward / 6-7 / Last team: Denver Nuggets

9.5 ppg, 3.2 apg

Displayed some scoring punch from the lead-guard spot with the Grizzlies last year, dropping 20 or more points five times in 2017-18. If his three-point shot improves, could be a solid backup point guard for years to come.
