Larry Brown will get $18.5 million from the New York Knicks, less than half of what the Hall of Fame coach had left on his contract when he was fired. [...] Brown had four years and more than $40 million remaining on his deal when the Knicks fired him in June after one season.

In the end, the Knicks essentially paid Brown $28.5 million for one year of work. The only NBA player to earn that much salary for one season of work was Michael Jordan, who topped out at $30 million before Retirement II.
