Last Game: 2016
Who’s Still Paying Him: Pistons
How Much They’re Still Paying Him: $5.3 million annually, 2015-16 through 2019-20
Smith went the Stephon Marbury route this season by signing to play in China. But he’s still making bank in the States.
When the Pistons decided they were through with Smith in 2014, they opted to eat the remaining money left on his contract by paying him $5.3 million per season through 2020. That’s $26.5 million for a guy who isn’t even playing for your team. Smith made more last year than Giannis Antetokounmpo did.
