Report: Jonathan Kuminga, top prospect for 2021 NBA Draft, to earn $500K in NBA minor league
Now, he’s fast-tracking his ascent – turning pro by signing with the NBA’s minor league and positioning himself for the 2021 NBA Draft.
Shams Charania of The Athletic:
Kuminga will join Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd and Daishen Nix in this professional-pathway program.
We’ll see how well this setup, run by Brian Shaw, prepares young players for the NBA. But the money is nice. Kuminga ($500,000), Green ($500,000), Todd ($250,000) and Nix ($300,000) have approximate salaries that wouldn’t be allowed by the NCAA cartel system.
Hopefully, the competition forces college basketball to treat its players more fairly.
