Players With Most Guaranteed Long-Term Salary

Many of the NBA's most overpaid players, such as Hedo Turkoglu, Kris Humphries, Corey Maggette and others, will see their contracts come to an end this year or next, but that doesn't mean that there aren't still plenty of teams with long-term commitments on their books. Many of these long-term deals were signed within the last year or two, meaning the players are still performing at a high level.

A good percentage of those players will continue to play well throughout their contracts, but the success rate is unlikely to be 100%. A handful of these big-money four- or five-year deals could go south before they eventually expire.

Listed below are all the players who will still have $30MM or more in guaranteed money remaining on their contracts, starting next season. Non-guaranteed money and/or team options aren't included in these amounts, but player options are, since a team has little to no control over whether those options will be exercised.
