The NBA salary cap is at an all-time high, which means the contracts being agreed to are colossal. It’s only Day 1 and some are in the hundreds of millions. For instance, Mike Conley agreed to a five-year, $153 million deal, per USA TODAY Sports.
Andrew Luck became the highest-paid player in NFL history this past week, but even his contract is only a six-year, $140 million deal.
NFL players reacted accordingly.
