Full Answer

Compared to the NBA, earning potential in the WBNA is severely limited. The WBNA pays a bonus of $15,000 to the season's Most Valuable Player, and a bonus of $10,500 to each member of the championship team. Because of the low earning potential, many WNBA players play overseas during the off-season.
