The NBA G League will increase its base player salaries from $35k to $37k this season, adding $2k per player, sources told Hoops Rumors. Players previously made $7,000 per month — or $35k per season — numbers that will see slight increases starting with the 2021/22 season.
Dane Moore: Chris Finch on Malik Beasley’s role: “We’ve been tellin’ him that he’s probably gonna get more opportunities with the second unit than he is with the first. Just because of all the high usage guys that are in that unit.”
Tom Orsborn: As Spurs’ elder statesman, Thad Young says he’s “a voice behind coach Pop” and his staff and is continuing to “instill the will that I bring to the court, all the intangible things I do.”
JD Shaw: Swedish point guard Barra Njie is signing a contract in the NBA G League and entering the October 23 draft, agent Jerry Dianis tells @HoopsRumors. Njie rejected multiple EuroLeague and ACB offers, Dianis said.
