Only 9 NBA players are being paid 90% of their salary during this league suspension, and all 9 players are represented by Rich Paul.
Rich Paul knows how to get the job done. While most NBA players are struggling to get most of their salary during this suspension, Rich Paul has all his athletes cashing checks.
Rumors of the NBA season being canceled is becoming a very likely possibility. If this season is canceled, the NBA could withhold 1.08 percent of each player’s 2019-20 salary for every game missed.
The NBA can enforce this by invoking a “force majeure” clause designed for emergency situations only. But, some players already received the most of their salary upfront, so they’re in the clear.
