While there have been some huge contracts agreed to already in the NBA, obviously highlighted by LeBron's max deal with the Lakers, the biggest contract of all could be one of the smallest.
Two-time All-NBA center DeMarcus Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3 million deal with the reigning champion Golden State Warriors.
Boogie could have easily gotten more money elsewhere, including his old team in the Pelicans.
Reports indicate that New Orleans offered Cousins $20 million a year at the end of the season before the four-time All-Star turned it down. The Lakers were also reported as potentially offering him a deal, but instead Boogie decided to make the best team in sports even better for little money.
While you can't deny Cousins' determination to win a championship, his competitive nature is certainly in question. This is the man who once laughed at Kevin Durant for joining a 73-9 Golden State team.

With a starting five of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Cousins, the Golden State Warriors may have already won their fourth title in five years before things even get going.
