Stephen A. Smith is ready to cash out!

Hate him or love him, there is no denying that Stephen A. Smith is one of the hardest working men at ESPN right now, and now he’s set to become paid like it.

Smith is in line to become the highest-paid on-air person at ESPN by potentially boosting his salary to $10 million per year, according to people with knowledge of the upcoming negotiations.

The Post spoke with multiple executives and agents to figure out the number that Smith could garner, and the consensus was in the $8 million-to-$10 million range. By comparison, Mike Greenberg is paid $6.5 million to host “Get Up!,” which is the network’s highest publicly known salary. PTI’s Michael Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser are believed to be in Greenberg’s neighborhood.

Smith’s deal with ESPN is set to expire in 2021.
