NBA DL Salaries 

Post#1 » by sweetcity » Fri Nov 21, 2014 2:29 pm

Does anyone know what a middle of the road scrub in the NBA DL makes a year? I was just leafing through some rosters and its shocking how many guys from my childhood are still playing basketball. I'm wondering the salary for example of Joe Forte, former NBA pick and UNC standout.

D-League salaries are in 3 tiers. $25,500, $19,000 and $13,000. Team salary cap is $173,000. Although they get room and board paid for by the team as well as a $40/day travel per diem.

In the off-season, but remember... the season doesn't last 12 month... they're playing basketball for 5-6 months and getting paid a decent amount of money for doing so.
