Today in NPF, a team pays Abbott $1 mil. Why? How? Cause they think she's star, so got creative w/ salary structure. Why can't WNBA do that?

Kate Fagan @katefagan3

BC more free agent signings and flexibility and wheeling and dealing would mean more discussion about the @WNBA. Right now there is little.

Kate Fagan @katefagan3

That would be like if Steve Kerr got paid $60 million to coach the Warriors. There are ways for WNBA to get creative with its $ structure.

Kate Fagan @katefagan3

Something like $500k, then fill in the roster with smaller pieces around here? And why do some WNBA coaches make 2-3 TIMES (!) league max?

Kate Fagan @katefagan3

Cause FYI: almost 30 percent (!) of the league makes near $110k league max. Why shouldn't, say, the Liberty be allowed to offer Taurasi ...

Kate Fagan @katefagan3

But what the @WNBA COULD explore distributing its wealth ($900k salary cap per team) differently to pay stars who move the needle.
