15. Juwan Howard – Net Worth $80m
Juwan Howard is now an assistant coach for the Miami Heat, but was previously a 2x NBA champion, an NBA All-Star and was the first player in the NBA to sign a £100m contract. Impressive.
Howard is a big real estate fan, having purchased a number of eye-wateringly expensive properties in Chicago, New York and South Florida, making him one of the richest NBA players of all time. He has a big, fancy 54-ft yacht too. Not entirely content with just flashing the cash though, Juwan Howard set up his own foundation and gives to a number of humanitarian causes in and around Florida, as well as internationally.
