Does anybody here know how much a D-League player gets payed? And if a player gets sent down to the D-League, do they still receive their NBA salary along with the D-League one or do they get the D-League salary?

If a player with an NBA contract gets sent down they still get their NBA salary and it still counts to the NBA team's cap figure.

Not sure how much the other D-league players make, but it isn't that much - a quick google search says it's in the vicinity of 15k-25k for a season.

You would think D-Leaguers should make relative money to NBA players but they really don't. Didnt Rashard Lewis make like 25k a minute or something and D-Leaguers make 25k a year?

I find the whole concept of a multi millionares playing with guys who make 20 k a year kind of weird. The whole idea of an NBA player getting paid millions going to fast food joints with guys living under the minimum wage because they can't afford better food is really bizarre.
