Full Answer

Unlike NBA players who earn staggering pay checks, women in the WNBA have some of the lowest take-home salaries among professional athletes. Popular NBA players, such as Kobe Bryant and Lebron James, earn more money annually than every single player in the WNBA combined. The minimum rookie salary among the women's sport is $35,190, while veteran players can make up to a maximum of $101,000 as of 2014.
