    Landmark day in the WNBA: New collective bargaining agreement that has raised average salaries to six figures for first time ($130,000, up to $500,000 for top players), improved travel and marketing opportunities, and fully paid salary on maternity leave among other changes.

    This is great news and about damn time. We need the popular stars to play and to not sit out when their overseas club pays them significantly more to do so.

    More than anything this means the end of the bench players can actually afford to focus on just basketball year round. Still not to a point where the WNBA will be the only league these ladies focus on every year, but it is at least a step in the right direction towards waking the WNBA a priority.
