Was thinking to myself the other day ... what ever happened Gilbert Arenas? It was only a few years ago that "Agent Zero" was at his Fullest, and all over the media in blogs and what not. And this is even before the guns incident.
He's still only 31 years old, and making a cool $22M this year, from the Magic. 3rd highest in the League... and playing in China apparently.
Found this article where they try to put together a starting lineup for less than his $22M:
PG – Kyrie Irving $5,915,880
SG – Paul George $3,282,003
SF – Jeff Green $8,700,000
PF – Reggie Evans $1,695,636
C – Nick Collison $2,585,668
Thought that was a clever exercise to do in the slums of Summer around here, so here was my attempt at making a better starting lineup for $22M or Less:
PG - Kyle Lowry $6,210,000
SG - Bradley Beal $4,319,000
SF - Paul George $3,280,000
PF - Larry Sanders $3,053,000
C - Greg Monroe $4,086,000
All salaries can be found at Basketball-Reference.com
Any takers? Can you top these lineups with a Payroll of less than $22M?
