    And they say Turkey wastes money.

    So maybe, European leagues may have more attractive and some talented players will decide to stay.

    There are lot of mistakes in players of Spanish clubs. Navarro earns 2'5 not 3, boni earns 1'250 now not 1. Lampe earns a lot more 1'5 at least, San M earns more than 1 m. If rudy play for madrid (not official yet) he will earn 3 million. Eidson earns 1'4 million dollars. Huertas earns 1'4m

    True. Another example of the great policy. proving year after year you don't have to get an owner that spills millions and millions of dollars and you don't have to overpay players.
    The biggest salary in Maccabi this year is (or was supposed to be?) Pargo with 900K$

    Because in your country u have less taxes than other countries and maybe 900.000$ in Israel is the same than 1.200.000$ in a european country

    The taxes for foreign players are 25%, even if there is a difference it's still far from huge and Maccabi wouldn't have any player in the 1M Euro+ list

    Ty Lawson should earn ~1.200.000 USD per season.

    So even with smaller taxes Maccabi pays (MUCH) smaller salaries. I'd say it only makes my argument stronger.

    You can be sure I don't. But the fact is Maccabi is one of the lowest spenders, even if you add the taxes that could be if Maccabi was in a different country, this "imaginary budget" would still be very low compared to other top teams in Europe.

    This is the salary for the 2011-12 season, not the average of the contract. Navarro makes €2.5 million for the average of his contract, but €3 million for next season.

    €1.5, €2.5, €2.5, €3.0, €3.0 - that is Navarro's contract, so that means he will make 3.0 million next season. Although, there is a bit of a discrepancy, as to whether or not that is gross or net.

    It seems like it is gross, but that Barca goes ahead and pays his taxes for him as a courtesy, but that they don't have to as his contract is. So at anytime his salary could drop to €1.8

    You are right about N'Dong and Lampe. I listed them wrong. I was writing so many names I just missed those. I actually lost D. Lavrinovic's listing too in the wrong place and amount and noticed it. I just did not notice those too.

    Sam Emeterio will earn €1 million euros net next season, which is what this is a ranking of. After next season, he will earn €1.5 million net per season for the next 4 years. So he will be earning €1.5 per season after this season, but just €1.0 for next year.

    Huertas will earn €1.8 next year. €1.8, €1.9, €1.9 is his contract.

    Eidson's contract is listed as €1.4 million euros. Perhaps that is an error and it is really $1.4 million dollars, but the fact is that it is listed as €1.4 million euros. But it could be either way.

    Rudy's deal with Real Madrid for €3 million per season is said to be brutto, not netto. If it is brutto, then that means it would be €1.8 net per season. So that is why I listed it that way.

    If it turns out to be €3 million netto, then I will change it. But so far it is being reported as €3 million brutto, which means it would be €1.8 per season net.

    Which incidentally, would make him equal to Navarro as the highest contract in ACB, at €1.8 net. Because Navarro's actual contract is in the €3 million gross, and the club does not have to pay his taxes as the contract is. But they do it as a courtesy, but could stop if they want to.

    So maybe, Rudy's contract is the same. €3.0 gross (€1.8 net) and the club does not have to pay the taxes, but will do as a courtesy....with the ability to stop if they wanted. If it is, then I would change it to €3 net once he signed.

    Or maybe, it is indeed €1.8 net (€3 gross) as the earlier reports indicate.

    I have re double checked through the list for errors and I do not find any.


    Someone mentioned Maccabi......

    Sofoklis Schortsanitis - €450,000 euros net income

    Jannero Pargo - €625,000 euros net income

    Devin Smith - €275,000 euros net income

    Jon Scheyer - €210,000 euros net income

    Theo Papaloukas - €550,000 euros net income

    Jordan Farmar - €700,000 euros net income

    etc., etc. Eliyahu, Blue, Macvan, whomever. They do not have such huge salaries as a lot of the other clubs. But still, those are high salaries.

    In Zalgiris, the signings from the NBA, Sonny Weems and Ty Lawson are both at €830,000 euros net income.

    Nicolas Batum signed with SLUC Nancy for €180,000 euros net income.

    More or less OK with the whole message but the contract of marce is 7m-1'3=5'7 m for 4 years = 1'425m for year
