Kemba Walker easily.

There are some other really good contracts, but Kemba's looks like an absolute bargain especially considering production.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline (New York Knicks)

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks

I agree on this pick. TP.

Walker is only Charlottes 6th best paid player (after Howard, Batum, M.Williams, Kidd-Gilchrist, C.Zeller). He can't be very happy about that considering he's easily the best among them.

Also a TP for Jvalin for doing some work to start an interesting thread. Because I had multiple options I also selected E.Gordon, who also brings great value for his contract.

I said Kemba too...MM has been playing at a high level for us and his contract is peanuts too, but Kemba is playing really well.

Middleton or Walker? That George Hill contract is terrible.

It goes against the rules, but Lebron. Always Lebron.

Okay Thompson has another year left, right? Thatís a bargain, as is Drayís.

I voted for Dirk , not for his on court production but for his ability to get paying customers to still turn up to see Mavs home games , despite being one of the worst teams in the league they still sell out all their home games in large part due to him still being associated with the franchise.

Would Theis count according to your criteria? He's quickly becoming great value.

Not even one mention of Tyreke Evans?  That just might be the signing of the offseason given his contract-to-production ratio, and I'm honestly surprised that Ainge didn't go after him, given his previous interest in the former ROY.  Didn't Danny once try to trade Rondo for Tyreke?  I lost track in regards to Ainge trying to trade Rondo a long time ago, lol.

Funny to name Rondo. Also a great contract for the same type of money. Really overlooked.

Why do players like Teague and Hill earn around 20 million and Rondo only 3?
