The NBA is full of players that can be categorized as overpaid. The contracts have taken huge steps up in price in recent years and this has led to many players cashing in. This includes Julius Randle of the New York Knicks.

Randle took advantage of a strong season last year and signed a four-year, $117 million deal in the offseason. He was a major reason why the Knicks finished as the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. It did not take long for the franchise to come back down to Earth.

In 72 games, Randle is averaging 20.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, and 5.1 assists while shooting 30.8% from three-point range. These are all drops from last season.
