The NBA will restart the 2019-20 season next week on July 30 with a two-game slate featuring the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz vs. New Orleans Pelicans. DraftKings has a ton of contests already posted and they just released salaries for the opening two-game slate. Here’s a link to the salaries and contest for the NBA $3M Return Millionaire.
So some of these prices are pretty eye-opening, so lets start at the top. Obviously, LeBron James ($10,700) and Anthony Davis ($10,000) are the two highest priced players with Kawhi Leonard ($9,200) coming in behind them. After that is when the fun begins. You’d think that Paul George would be the natural player to follow those two, but that isn’t the case. PG-13 is $7,200. That’s no joke. As I’m writing this, George is tearing up the Orlando Magic in the first NBA scrimmage of the restart. PG-13 is priced under FOUR Pelicans players, including Zion Williamson ($7,500) and Lonzo Ball ($7,400).
