    For next season:

    Bosh - $22,000,000 (roughly)
    Howard - $21,436,271
    Parsons - $15,000,000
    Harden - $14,693,906

    I hope this doesn't mean we have to watch the Beard pout for the next few years until he gets his next big contract.

    Parsons contract actually came in a little less than reported. He will be under Harden.

    Why would he pout? He got all the money he possibly could at the time he got his deal just like the other 3.

    He literally cannot be paid any more. Why would he pout?

    If he knew he would be this good, he should have signed for 2 year contract. Too bad, we lock him down cheap and long.

    You guys are the ones painting him as pouting. I'm sure he's just fine, fans just have to have a reason to complain or call out a player.

    Actually, Parsons will make slightly less than Harden

    That's a relief. I'd hate for Harden to have to ask CP for stripper money.

    well he could've been paid more, but his age limits him to Parsons and Hayward level pay scale

    He will get his big one after this contract though

    As a veteran with 6 years of experience or less, Parsons max is: $14,746,000. Bosh has 10+ years, so $20,644,400. He's entitled to up to 105% of his last contract, but that last one was slightly under max, making $20.644m the higher number.

    So, it'll be in 2014-15:

    Howard - $21,436,271
    Bosh - $20,644,400
    Parsons - $14,746,000
    Harden - $14,693,906

    That's $71.5m tied up in 4 players.

    Exactly. He got the highest amount possible and he will get the highest amount possible come 2018.

    Harden was a 6th man when he signed, and he will get another contract before he is done.

    Harden is now an asset.
