The Brooklyn Nets aren’t just the team with the highest salary in the NBA. They have the number two team in the Miami Heat beat out by $20 million thanks to the additions of Kevin Garnett ($11.5 million), Paul Pierce ($15 million) and Jason Terry ($5.2 million). That’s half of the Philadelphia 76ers total team salary at the moment.

Our Los Angeles Clippers come in at seventh after maxing out Chris Paul and adding J.J. Redick ($6.5 million) and Jared Dudley ($4.25 million) to the current roster. Even those additions and the subtraction of Dwight Howard the Clippers are still come in second to their rivals across the hall in the Los Angeles Clippers. Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Pau Gasol will be making a combined $58 million this season.

The biggest shocker on the list is currently the Houston Rockets. Even by adding James Harden and Dwight Howard to their roster on max salaries (the two will go on to make a combined $33 million this year) the past two seasons, they’re still in the bottom based on salary. That will soon change as Chandler Parsons will be approaching extension time and Daryl Morey and co. looks to fill out the rest of the roster.
