The Rookie of the Year and two-time All Star signed a five-year, $139.9 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers in 2016. The 27-year old is averaging 22.4 PPG and 6.2 assists and helped lead Portland to the playoffs this past season, so it’s easy to see why the Trail Blazers offered him such a nice contract. He’s due to make the largest paychecks at the end of the contract, $29.8 million in 2019-20 and another $31.7 million in 2020-21.
