    Good Stevie Johnson article

    I haven't heard much about him since he's been playing in Europe, but it looks like he's been pretty successful.

    Re: Good Stevie Johnson article

    I'm curious; how much money does Stevie / Euro players make? Does a contract with Iowa Energy pay more?

    Unless you are on a NBA contract the D-League players don't make nearly as much as you would overseas.

    I dont even think its close, you can make great money overseas if you can stand to live there. The D league and others like it over here pay very little. You'd pretty much have to have another job to pay the bills.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: Good Stevie Johnson article

    I'm not sure how much Stevie is making but I know Homan made 180k-200k his first couple years in Europe. I don't think NBDL players make more than 60k(probably less) unless there are under contract with a pro team.

    that's what I thought. Unless Stevie has a longing desire to move back to the US / Iowa, I can't see why he'd want to take that much of a pay cut..........Then again, if he's still dating Tracy Gahan, I don't blaming him for moving (PS: I thought she was playing in Australia, or some thing like that).

    Last I knew Martin and Horton were on the same team in Italy. That was a while back though...

    D League players don't even make more than $25,000 from the people I have talked to that are close to players.

    Re: Good Stevie Johnson article

    If the NBA ever wants the best talent NOT in the NBA to play in the D-League they are going to HAVE to offer development contracts and have the big teams pay the players...
