In a bold move, the NBA G League is doing away with its “A” and “B” payment tiers for the 2018-19 season. It will instead raise G League salary to $7,000 a month for all players, amounting to $35,000 for a five-month season. Still doesn’t seem like much!
Previously, players in the G League could earn an “A” salary of $26,000 per season, while players with a “B” salary would earn $19,000 per season. The league is trying to make it more attractive for players to stay and play here rather than go abroad where they could make a lot more money.
