Will this top 10 list remain the same next year?

Three of these NBA players - Giannis Antetokounmpo, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and LeBron James, are already on the NBA’s list of Hall of Fame players, and two new entrants - Tobias Harris and CJ McCollum, have yet to take part in an All-Star NBA game. If you look to next season, we are also likely to see a slightly different top 10 NBA highest earners because brand-new multi-million dollar contracts for several other players, such as Joel Embiid and Nikola Jokic, are currently being drafted. According to reports, they are said to be worth somewhere in the region of $46,000,000 each.
