We have seen plenty of NBA players getting some wildly rich contracts this offseason, leaving many to question just how much many of these players are really worth. The latest player to get a ridiculous contract appears to be none other than CJ McCollum, according to the one and only Adrian Wojnarowski.

Hey, good for CJ. Who says you can’t make big money by playing basketball at Lehigh, right? You knew that, didn’t you? It’s OK if you forgot about that, although he did put together a well-regarded career in the college ranks before rising to be a 10th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.

This past season saw McCollum named the NBA’s most improved player, so Portland had good reason for keeping him in the fold. The question remains, did they outbid themselves?


Yep, pretty crazy. Keep it going NBA teams, because there is always time to raise the crazy meter just a bit more.
