The average salary of a WNBA player is estimated to be around $72,000. This makes the average total league-wide wages $10,368,000.

It's important to note that the WNBA, unlike the NBA, forbids publicly disclosing the details of a player's contract/salary. The WNBA consists of 12 teams with 12-player rosters and a minimum salary of $37,950. The maximum (for players who have played at least six seasons) is $107,000.

1. Kobe Bryant made $30,453,805 for the 2013-2014 season, nearly three times as much as the entire WNBA. His salary alone amounts to the average salaries of 423 WNBA players.

2. With a salary of $22,721,381, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki alone took home more than twice the amount earned by the entire WNBA — approximately 315 WNBA players.
