Non Rookie Contract Players PG: Rajon Rondo- Boston Celtics- 2012-13 Salary: 11 million Yes Rondo has by far the highest salary on this list, but he is one of the most underpaid players in the NBA as he is worth at least 15 million annually.

He is a top 15 NBA player and deserves to be paid like it. He is the most underpaid player in the NBA, based on his overall value.

The NBA should credit assists on made free throws
