Multiple league and team sources have reiterated that free agent Summer League participants do not get paid . An NBA club can bring a player to camp, pay them for their participation, and such an amount will likely still be more than the player is set to earn in the D- League alone.
The NBA Summer League , also known as the Las Vegas Summer League , is an off-season competition organized by the National Basketball Association. NBA teams come together to try out different summer rosters instead of their regular season line-ups, including rookie, sophomore and G League affiliate players.
The NBA’s restart in the bubble began during what would typically be the time for the offseason Las Vegas Summer League , which meant the 2020 version was canceled . Currently, there are no plans to stage a winter version of the event before next season. It’s too early to tell what might happen to the 2021 edition.
A rookie in the NBA makes a minimum of $893,310 to play in the NBA , a healthy raise over the five-figure deals that they would make in the NBA G-League. This scale puts owners off the hook for some of the money, with every penny over the $1.62 million earned by a player being paid out by the league.
The G League announced Tuesday that players will receive a base salary of $7,000 per month or $35,000 total for the five-month 2018-19 season. Players can earn additional money through affiliate player bonuses and NBA call-ups. Last season, the most a player could make was $26,000.
