It's still a bit shocking WNBA players are paid such a small salary. In this case, Griner will only make $165,100 for one season.


BY WILLS RICE, Arizona Sports:


The Phoenix Mercury have reportedly re-signed center Brittney Griner to a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.

Her Hoops Stats’ Richard Cohen first reported that the deal is for one year, protected and worth $165,100. This leaves Phoenix with exactly enough for two veteran minimums and two base minimums in their final four standard roster spots.

They came out and said they do not want to be paid equally but they want the same percentage of revenue share. The only problem is their league loses money each year and is fully supported by the NBA.

Posting for the math and not the snarky comments.
