A look at the contracts of each of the NBA Draft's lottery picks

The NBA uses a slotted contract system, unlike the NFL, so players can't wiggle too much in regards to what they will make in their first three-year rookie contract. That's where the endorsements come in but with this year's crop of rookies and our declining economy, endorsements might not be as great.

Number one pick Blake Griffin will make $16,071,840 over the first three years of his NBA career while Tyler Hansbrough, the 13th pick, will pull in $5,995,800.

CNBC's Darren Rovell has each lottery pick's contract, team and agent at Sports Biz.
