NBA free agency has become a new beast over the last few seasons, in large part to the NBA salary cap that continued to rise (not this year, but it’s still a lot). Teams have dished out huge contracts to mid-level players that frankly, do not deserve that kind of payday. A couple of examples that happened just last season….

Allen Crabbe signed a 4-year $75 million contract with Portland

Al-Farouq Aminu signed a 4-year $30 million contract with Portland

Solomon Hill signed a 4-year $52 million contract with New Orleans

Evan Fournier signed a 5-year $85 million contract with Orlando

Timofey Mozgov signed a 4-year $64 million contract with LA Lakers

Joakim Noah signed a 4-year $72 million contract with NY Knicks

Kent Bazemore signed a 4-year $70 million contract with Atlanta

These are just a few examples of decent players signing exorbitant contracts that are absolutely terrible. So what do we have in store for the 2017 free agency period? Most likely much of the same. Here are some mid-level players that will be overpaid drastically in a week or two.
