NBA In 2023: Most Overpaid Player On Each Team

Brooklyn Nets — Ben Simmons

2023 Salary: $35,448,572

The curious case of Ben Simmons is turning into a sad tale. We don’t know exactly what’s wrong with the former three-time All-Star. He looks fine physically — though there’s still a visible fear in shooting threes. Simmons is now even passing up opening shots for fear of getting fouled. Things have got so bad, that he’s now essentially functioning as the team’s third-string center. Based upon his production levels, paying Simmons $35 million per year is simply horrific.
