NOTE: Sure, $8.06 million is a pretty heavy chunk of change for ol' Charlie V, but he's actually been half-decent — a career-high 40.4 percent from 3-point land, great assist and turnover rates, a well above-average Player Efficiency Rating of 17.8 and more points scored already this season than he had all of last year. Now, $10.9 million man Corey Maggette, on the other hand ...
