Had Brandon Jennings re-signed with the Bucks on a long-term deal, he had a good chance to become the team's highest-paid player for the 2013/14 season, since the club's current highest salary for the season is just $8MM. After Milwaukee agreed to send Jennings to Detroit in a sign-and-trade deal though, it appears the list of highest-paid players by team for 2013/14 has been set.
Of the remaining available free agents, only Nikola Pekovic has a real chance to land the sort of contract that would make him a club's highest-paid player. However, he's viewed as a near-lock to return to the Timberwolves, in which case he's not likely to challenge Kevin Love's $14.69MM '13/14 salary.
Listed below are the highest-paid players and runners-up by team for 2013/14, along with the player to whom the club has committed the most long-term guaranteeed money. For our purposes, player options and early termination options are considered guaranteed salary, while team options aren't. Amnesty victims also won't be considered here, though if they rank among the team's highest-paid players for '13/14, we'll note it at the bottom of the page.
Here's the full list:
