The start of NBA free agency is a chance for franchises all over the league to prove just how much their stars mean to them.
They can quite literally put their money where their mouths are and pony up some serious cash for the players leading them.
Here are the numbers for Devin Booker and Karl-Anthony Towns:
Both cannot be traded for 1 season

Both Booker and Towns signed supermax deals with their respective teams that earned them each $224 over the next four years.
When you look at their numbers for their upcoming seasons, you see that these guys are getting at least $50 million per year.
And four years from now, in the 2027-28 season, Booker and Towns are bringing in $62.1 million.
These numbers are enormous and wild.
They’re also not surprising considering how much money is flowing in – and out – of the league.
Securing The Bag
Every year the NBA outdoes itself and hits new high marks with the amount of money being spent.
Hundreds of millions of dollars are devoted to individual players every single year.
This year, they raised the bar yet again.
The Denver Nuggets handed Nikola Jokic a five-year, $270 million supermax extension.
You read that right: 270 million dollars over five years.
Yes, that is the biggest NBA contract in history.
However, it’ll definitely be surpassed by another, larger amount before you know it.
You can rest assured that we are just a few years away from a $300 contract for some lucky NBA player.
Who do you think will be the player that earns such a insane figure?
These pros are making crazy sums of money but you have to admit they’re working hard for it.
