  • NBL Salaries

    Hey I'm looking for both domestic and foreign player salaries for the NBL. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Figures given here are guesstimates from the Australian basketball community, given that these are not publicly available. Note that the Australian NBL season is only from late October/early November until late February/early March. Therefore, many leading players freelance in Europe, the Philippines or Puerto Rico after that for extra coin. Unlike Europe, clubs may or may not include add ons including accommodation, car, medical, etc, and no club will pay tax, hence figures are gross.

    1. Bryce Cotton (Perth Wildcats) $A600K*
    1. David Andersen (Melbourne United) $A600K^
    3. Chris Goulding (Melbourne United) $A400^
    4. Kevin Lisch (Sydney Kings) $A350-$400K#
    5. Casey Prather (Melbourne United) $A350K*
    6. Casper Ware (Melbourne United) $A300-$A350K*
    7. Josh Childress (Adelaide 36ers) $A250-$A300K*
    7 Josh Boone (Melbourne United) $A250-$300K*
    9. Cameron Bairstow (Brisbane Bullets) $A250K^
    9. Kirk Penney (New Zealand Breakers) $A200K+

    * import, ^ local, # US born naturalised Australian, 2016 Olympian, +NZ national, considered local.

      Have some data how it goes in Australia.
      Here it is :The number before teams hit the luxury tax. Soft meaning teams are free to exceed this cap (and pay the luxury tax).

      The coming 2019/20 NBL season’s salary cap is set at $1.43 million.
      Starting 2019/20, a 7% limit is set on season-over-season cap growth.

      How is the cap after 2019/20 calculated?
      Formula: Accumulated spend from previous season, averaged by number of clubs.


      If total spend in 2019/20 was $13.5 million, with 9 clubs playing
      2020/21 salary cap would be 13.5 divided by 9 = $1.5 million
      In this scenario, increasing from $1.43 million (2019/20) to $1.5 million (2020/21) is less than 7%, so it would be valid.
      According to the latest CBA, which will be in effect for three years and i need smb to help me write my essay:
      Roster player minimum wages: $55,000.
      First-time development player minimum wages: $17,000
