What’s a contract like that worth? Would be nice to know
Non Star players average $60K to $100K but if your one of their superstars which I do not believe Cory is, you can earn up to $2 million, but they are few and far apart.

Thats a solid league and i believe they actually make pretty good money in that league
Yea pay in Serie A is generally pretty good. From a talent/competition standpoint it’s one of the top leagues in Europe for sure.

Just talked to an nba agent im friends with. Corey signed for $70K/yr. Unless youre top top top tier youre so much better off getting your degree and skipping euro ball and getting on the career track so that by the time youre 30 youre making $200K at a professional job rather than being unemployed with no skills at 30 after finishing your euro career

If you graduate from Rutgers with any kind of real degree, (sorry sociology majors) then you should be starting a career at$70K

And what percent of the population is going to make 200K at 30 years old?

Where are you guys coming up with these salaries? Degree or no degree, what percentage of people ever make $200,000, let alone 8 years after school. Other than some engineers and doctors, what Rutgers grads are making $70,000 at age 22? Maybe I just run in different circles than some of you. I don’t even know how I would spend $200,000 a year.

I made over $200K at 24 as a realtor. I dont think its as hard to achieve as youre making it out to be. Very few of my friends make less than $200K/yr and were all 27-31 years old

Times have changed Heaven. My daughter just graduated college is making 100k to start. Many of her friends are making 70-90k starting salaries. Not engineers either

Respectfully, I believe your perspective is skewed

$200,000 a year ...is top 4% of all American income earners ....

So, while you maybe be hanging with a high income crowd, most people , let alone 20-30 years do not earn $200,000 a year

You fell for it. This was just an opportunity for Kyle to tell you how much he makes.
Lol people like u are absurd.

someone said its rare for 30 year olds to make $200K, I dispute that claim in this area and provided a personal anecdote.

Pretty sure those salaries are reported as "post-tax" and the team also pays for housing. So not too shabby

yeah so I made 32,000 at age 29 (and age 22 I made -40,000)

If I could have played pro ball in Europe for 70,000 I would have done it in a heartbeat. Whats better than playing basketball for a living???

Or kid could live the dream of a pro ball player make some money tour Europe and have tons of fun. Then come back when he's done and start working. I thinkniys very attractive to a lot of people. Some people don't want to work a 9-5 at 25. Getting paid to tour Europe and play a game sounds amazing

No one cares
I don’t understand this mentality……you’re on a message board….here is a thread that ultimately is topical to the message board, yet people feel compelled to do a “no one cares” post. If you don’t care, then don’t open the thread.

Eh idk man. When you have a kid and youre a single parent earner how much of this $70K can you actually save and not pay on bills supporting family? My guess is its very close to $0. When your playing days are over at 30 what employable skills do you have without a degree, no trade experience and no working experiende to get anything more than a low level entry job making what $40K-50K/yr? Too many kids cant let go, its a problem. Unless youre making $250K+/yr in euroball youre alot better off starting your real life and growing your professional career

You understand many people outside of jersey live very well off 70k a year. Just cause you are in one of the most expensive places in the country your dismissiveness of 70k a year is genuinely ignorant. Now if he's girlfriend and child are living in morris County its a different issue. And plenty of people can make good money with no degree. 30 isn't that old anymore. Let the kid live his dream not everyone wants to sell real estate.

Many people inside of NJ can live comfortable at 70,000.

Not everyone needs to go to Starbucks and eat out every night.

you can get Rutgers season tickets for $325, there may be a dark web with instructions on how to park for free.

Playing and living a couple of years in Europe looks good on a resume. Dealt with a guy who played in Portugal and then jumped back to the States working for Citi for a nice comp package. Some come back and enter grad programs. Life experience has value.

I've paid about $0.40 per game to park over the past four years. Got one $20 parking ticket across 50ish games.

What majors?
My daughter was Supply Chain, but a premier bank in NYC wanted her for a non finance role. One of her friends is in sales and trading at CITI, another in PR and another in Real Estate. All NYC. So probably not representative of the country. All B1G schools.

You are who you are dude. There’s no getting around it. You could have cited stats instead or someway generalized but you made it about you as an example. We‘ve come to expect it.
