I’m not sure if the NBA is headed towards another lockout in 2017, but I do know that the owners cannot use excuse that they are losing money.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, NBA teams agreed in principle to pay over $1.4 billion in salary to players on Wednesday.

And that doesn’t even include the five-year extension estimated at nearly $145 million that Anthony Davis received from the New Orleans Pelicans.

Some of the notables include:

Damian Lillard, Blazers 5/$120M+
Kevin Love, Cavaliers 5/$110M
Kawhi Leonard, Spurs 5/$90M
Jimmy Butler, Bulls 5/$90M
Goran Dragic, Heat 5/$90M
Draymond Green, Warriors 5/$85M
Brandon Knight, Suns 5/$70M
Khris Middleton, Bucks 5/$70M
Brook Lopez, Nets 3/$60M

That doesn’t include LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan or LeBron James impending deals as well.
