Pacific Division

Golden State Warriors: PF Dario Saric ($2 million)

Dario Saric never lived up to the billing of a lottery pick, but he's still in the league at 29 years old and proving to be a bargain for the Golden State Warriors. The Croatian is playing exclusively at center for the Warriors, averaging 10.7 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. He's only signed through this season.

LA Clippers: PG Russell Westbrook ($3.8 million)

Don't laugh. Despite Russell Westbrook's ballyhooed reputation in his post-Thunder career, he's providing great value for the LA Clippers because of his willingness to take a massive pay cut in a way many of his peers don't. His shooting remains problematic, but Westbrook's usage is still helping him average 11.9 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game. He has a $4 million player option for next year.

Los Angeles Lakers: SF Cam Reddish ($2.2 million)

The Los Angeles Lakers are already the fourth team for the 24-year-old Cam Reddish, but they may be the most enduring fit. Reddish is showing signs of a breakout, particularly on the defensive end, where he sports one of the best steal percentages in the league. His player option for next year would pay him less than $2.5 million for the 2024-25 season.

Phoenix Suns: SG Eric Gordon ($3.2 million)

Eric Gordon has been in the NBA for 15 years and can still heat up with the best of them. The 35-year-old member of the Phoenix Suns is averaging 14.3 points per game, which would actually be his best scoring output in three years. He would receive a slight pay boost if he accepts a player option for next season.

Sacramento Kings: C JaVale McGee ($2 million)

JaVale McGee is actually playing for $3.2 million, but his cap hit is the veteran's minimum of slightly over $2 million. The big man is providing depth and veteran experience with averages of 5.1 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. He's an unrestricted free agent after the campaign.
