Who might have to take a pay cut next year?

There are several players with large expiring contracts that may not get similar money next year if they remain in the league. Here are a few:

Samuel Dalembert - 2010-11 salary: 13,428,129

2010-11 stats: 6.8 ppg, 6.9 ppg, 1.5 bpg

Dalembert will be 30 when next season starts and has averaged double figures in points twice and once in rebounds. There is definitely a place for him in the league, but 8 figures seems a stretch to say the least.

Andrei Kirilenko - 2010-11 salary: 17,823,000

2010-11 stats: 12.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 3.0 apg

Kirilenko is still a valuable player to Utah where he has spent his entire career. He brings versatility, athleticism and solid defense. However, he also brings a rash of injuries and his days of being an all-star seem to be behind him despite getting paid all-star money. He can still be an important player but will have to take significantly less money next year.

Kenyon Martin - 2010-11 salary: 16,545,454

2010-11 stats: 7.3 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 2.4 apg

Injuries have been a problem for the former #1 overall pick and at 33, he may not be a big part of Denver's plans going forward. Martin has playoff experience and can still provide valuable minutes for a franchise. His contract, however, will have to be less valuable to him.

Who would you add to this list?

AK47 will probably get an offer at around MLE as teams would love his defensive ability and versatility.

Big Sam could get an offer from a contender who wants a big man to patrol the glass but again it would proably be from around $4 million a year up to MLE.

K-Mart has seemed to have stepped up a bit and played more minutes since Melo was traded so Denver may look to keep him but his value could be anything from veteran's minimum up to MLE. As K-Mart is 33 years old now then he may decide he wants to chase a title and take less money if one of the top contenders comes in for him.

Amost everyone

with an expiring contract will have to take a pay cut. If they get paid at all next year. Owners want to cut $8million from payrolls for the next CBA.

It depends on new CBA. Under

It depends on new CBA. Under the current one Dalember could get some team to pay him 9 million. Kenyon Martin could get 8 million. Ak could also get 7 to 8 million. If the New CBA is a dramatic change AK47 may be the one that gets the most money with Dalembert 2nd. Martin is the better talent but he is old and has dealt with injuries for most of his other contract. I would say 3 years with 4th as a team option and maybe 5 years.

Add Tyson Chandler to the list..... I don't think he will command 12.5 million in a new deal like he is this season

Tyson Chandler could well get a $10 million a year plus as he will be a sought after defensive big man this summer and Dallas always pay well to retain big men.
