NBA Contracts: Few will argue that Rajon Rondo has the best contract in the NBA (5 years, $55 million). That’s excellent value for one of the 10 best players in the league. But we’ll disagree that Matt Barnes (2 years, $9 million) has the third best deal in the league. A smart move by the Lakers? Certainly. But not Top 10 worthy. Two names missing from the worst contract list: Troy Murphy (his expires next summer) and Andrew Bynum (4 years, $58 million). The latter has been pivotal during LA’s two title runs – during the regular season. He’s been inconsistent and perpetually-injured in the postseason. The upside is that he’s only 22. [Oklahoman]
