    Calipari's Players Earning & Projections For Current Players

    I thought that this was great information that I didn't want to see get buried in a different thread:

    BTI?s Rants and Ramblings: Why There are 7 Guys Likely Leaving this Year | Kentucky Sports Radio

    Career NBA Earnings
    John Wall (5 seasons): $38,796,165 ($70.04 million more over next 4 seasons)
    Eric Bledsoe (5 seasons): $19,589,466 ($57.83 million more over next 4 seasons)
    Demarcus Cousins (5 seasons): $29,501,384 ($47.27 million more over next 3 seasons)
    Patrick Patterson (5 seasons): $14,816,628 ($12.32 million more over next 2 seasons)
    Daniel Orton (3 seasons): $2,891,672 (out of NBA)

    Enes Kanter (4 seasons): $18,776,594 (not under contract after this season)
    Brandon Knight (4 seasons): $11,666,757 (not under contract after this season)
    Josh Harrellson (3 seasons): $1,712,094 (out of NBA)
    Deandre Liggins (2 seasons): $1,235,799 (out of NBA)

    Anthony Davis (3 seasons): $16,127,280 ($7.07 million more next season, team option)
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (3 seasons): $14,429,520 ($6.33 million more next season)
    Terrence Jones (3 seasons): $4,655,520 ($2.49 million more next seasons)
    Marquis Teague (2 seasons): $2,103,120 (out of NBA)
    Doron Lamb (2 seasons): $1,438,872 (out of NBA)
    Darius Miller (2 seasons): $1,662,476 (out of NBA)

    Nerlens Noel (2 seasons): $6,487,440 ($7.84 million more over next 2 seasons, team option in 2016-17)
    Archie Goodwin (2 seasons): $2,176,680 ($3.25 million more over next 2 seasons, team option in 2016-17)

    Julius Randle (1 season): $2,997,360 ($10.55 million more over next 3 seasons, team options in 2016-17 and 2017-18)
    James Young (1 season): $1,674,480 ($6.38 million more over next 3 seasons, team options in 2016-17 and 2017-18)

    A couple things to consider when looking at the following projections:
    a. Rookie Pay Scale used is for 2014-15 NBA season, subject to change
    b. Draft projections from nbadraft.net
    c. All contracts are 4 years but final 2 years are team options

    Karl-Anthony Towns (1st pick): $20.71 million over 4 years
    Trey Lyles (7th pick): $11.29 million over 4 years
    Willie Cauley-Stein (10th pick): $9.04 million over 4 years
    Devin Booker (18th pick): $6.38 million over 4 years
    (Aaron Harrison, Andrew Harrison, and Dakari Johnson not projected in 1st round)

    CURRENT: 57 seasons, $192,739,307
    FUTURE: 46 seasons, $278.79 million

    Hell ya he is. He's was good for Utah but has been solid, at least offensively for the Thunder.

    Many of the BBN have the "What if Jodi came back and played in 2009-2010?" and that's a good. But I would have loved to watch Kanter play for the Cats.

    Knight should be in for a nice payday as well. Someone is going to give him $8-10M a year.

    Cal has absolutely nothing to do with any of them making that money. They were all going to make it regardless.

    I don't know if I buy that with Harrellson or Liggins.

    The rest, I agree.

    I'll give you those two but the majority of them were headed to the NBA and to fat bank accounts despite Cal. At the same time, his ability to get this type of talent on a yearly basis is amazing to watch yearly.
