Cappie Pondexter tells TMZ Sports activities she BARELY makes six figures a yr as one of many WNBA’s largest superstars … and he or she’s pissed off about it, saying the league “ought to pay me what I deserve!”
It has been a heated subject within the hoops world not too long ago — with gamers like Skylar Diggins-Smith voicing their dismay in regards to the pay distinction between NBA gamers and their WNBA counterparts.
Pondexter could not have agreed extra with Skylar after we received her out in L.A. selling her CBD skincare line … telling us the league ONLY shells out $113,000 a yr for her to play.
“It is simply getting out of line now,” the Indiana Fever star says.
“I have been within the league for 13 years, making the vet minimal, which for me is $113,000 for the final 5 years, which is nothing in comparison with what the minimal is and the utmost is for the NBA.”
“I am not saying that we have now to get what they’ve, however I feel we must always see some progress at this level.”
