NBA Player Valuations, Part 1

Over the next few days, I will be issuing charts assigning monetary values to every NBA player who has played more than 100 minutes this season, based on the average salary of $6,000,000 and my Composite Score [(1.5*Win Shares/48 + Wins Produced/48)/2.5].  I understand that the best players’ salaries appear to be too low, while the weakest players not producing at subzero levels have values that are too high.  However, these are just basic Excel calculations, and are by no means the be-all end-all.  The letters in parentheses are leagues where that player might consider trying out for, as his value is lower than the minimum salary.
