LeBron James, Steph Curry won't face pay decrease, but will owe money

NBA teams will withhold more than $30 million from player paychecks on Friday, as players receive their first salary reduction since the league and the union agreed to a plan to temporarily cut pay by 25%.

But five of the NBA's top-10 earners this season -- LeBron James, Stephen Curry, John Wall, Blake Griffin and Paul George -- have already been paid in full and will not see a pay decrease on Friday.

Their salary reductions will come out of their advances for the 2020-21 season on Oct.
