It is important to say that "team budget" in European basketball doesn't mean only players' salaries. Here are last season EuroLeague budgets where in many cases salaries are just about half of "team budget".

Talking about salaries, here is unofficially EuroLeague TOP10 salaries this season:

$5,400,000 - Nikola Mirotic (Barcelona)
$4,000,000 - Alexey Shved (Khimki)
$3,000,000 - Walter Tavares (Real Madrid)
$2,600,000 - Nando De Colo (Fenerbahce)
$2,550,000 - Nick Calathes (Panathinaikos)
$2,430,000 - Jan Vesely (Fenerbahce)
$2,200,000 - Sergio Rodriguez (Olimpia Milan)
$2,200,000 - Sergio Llull (Real Madrid)
$2,200,000 - Alex Abrines (Barcelona)
$2,150,000 - Greg Monroe (Bayern Munich)

Re: 2019-20 Season Top 10 Highest Paid Players In EuroLeague 

Post#3 » by Mirotic12 » Tue Nov 12, 2019 5:53 pm

Those are mainly budgets of total player costs (net salary plus taxes, living and car expenses), and a few teams added in net salary of the head coach and agent costs and taxes.

Total budges are more. Those listed budgets for example of Olympiacos and Panathinaikos, cover nothing but net player salaries and their taxes, and don't even include cost of player living and cars.

Also, under current EuroLeague rules, the player salaries have to be at least 65% of the club's total operating budgets. So they have to be at least a minimum of 15% more than 50% of the overall cost, which again, is higher than those listed.

As for the salaries, those are just the net income amounts the players earn. That's how much the players earn after taxes, agent fees, union fees, insurance, retirement funds, etc. are all deducted.

NBA salaries are always only listed as the gross amount, the amount before all deductions and taxes. So those salaries would be worth more than double those amounts, in how NBA counts salary. For a realistic comparison to NBA salaries, you have to at least double those amounts. That doesn't even factor in that the EuroLeague clubs pay for the living quarters, cars, and utilities of the players also. Something the NBA does not do.

So it's actually:

$5,400,000 net income - Nikola Mirotic (Barcelona)
$4,000,000 net income - Alexey Shved (Khimki)
$3,000,000 net income - Walter Tavares (Real Madrid)
$2,600,000 net income - Nando De Colo (Fenerbahce)
$2,550,000 net income - Nick Calathes (Panathinaikos)
$2,430,000 net income - Jan Vesely (Fenerbahce)
$2,200,000 net income - Sergio Rodriguez (Olimpia Milan)
$2,200,000 net income - Sergio Llull (Real Madrid)
$2,200,000 net income - Alex Abrines (Barcelona)
$2,150,000 net income - Greg Monroe (Bayern Munich)


Net income (EuroLeague), versus gross income (NBA), is a huge difference that has to be accounted for, when comparing the salaries in the two leagues. Remmeber that US sports agents, as a standard, double the listed net amounts for EuroLeague, to compare them to what the listed gross amounts are in terms of how they would compare to NBA contracts. So for what those salaries would look like in NBA terms (gross money):

$10,800,000 - Nikola Mirotic (Barcelona)
$8,000,000 - Alexey Shved (Khimki)
$6,000,000 - Walter Tavares (Real Madrid)
$5,200,000 - Nando De Colo (Fenerbahce)
$5,100,000 - Nick Calathes (Panathinaikos)
$4,868,000 - Jan Vesely (Fenerbahce)
$4,400,000 - Sergio Rodriguez (Olimpia Milan)
$4,400,000 - Sergio Llull (Real Madrid)
$4,400,000 - Alex Abrines (Barcelona)
$4,300,000 - Greg Monroe (Bayern Munich)
