2012-2013 Salary: $2.5 million
Since starting full-time, Ty Lawson has crept his way into the conversation of Top-10 point guards. His relentless motor gives opposing teams headaches. Ty is a 49 percent shooter from the field which is damn near unheard of from a point guard. Even at 5'11", he's able to penetrate and kick at will or he'll take it straight to the bucket. Since the Melo trade, he has emerged as the Nuggets' best player. His handle isn't all that, but what does that matter if you can't catch him? Right now, at this very moment, we feel he's Top-10.
