The Wright Decision: NBA Rookie Salary Scale

Under the terms of the NBA's rookie salary scale, the 10th pick in this year's draft will be guaranteed about $3.5 million over two seasons, and he could make as much as $11.3 million over five seasons. The numbers go up from there significantly for picks in the upper reaches of the first round, but it's difficult to know for sure where in the top 10 Brandan Wright will be selected if he declares by the April 29 early entry deadline, in part because some other prominent underclassmen haven't made their intentions known yet.
