Bad news for Antonio Blakeney
Per Matt M. on ESPN 104.5/104.9 he wasn't invited to NBA combine.
67 invited and only 60 get picked. Some of more prominent guys are not going to combine.

Please tell me he didn't hire an agent yet.

He probably has some clue his next stop won't be the NBA either way.

He can still make good money and have fun career.

I disagree. He wont be a star by any means in Europe, and will get little minutes. Those guys are pretty damn good over there

overseas. I hope he does well overseas and gets to the NBA and isn't an assistant coach for a girl's high school team in 6 years.

Really wanted him stay another year.

Why make thousands when you can make hundreds?

Probably not. He would have to become really good over there to get that. He's a nobody so he's not close to making that anywhere out the gate.

re: Bad news for Antonio Blakeney
Overseas pros make a huge range of salaries:

The Top

In Euro league: the best 30 players make somewhere between 1 and 3 million USD per year

In the top national leagues such as the ACB, VTB, ESAKE, BSL etc. most players will make between 5–10k a month

On top of this: house, car, food, and sometimes even taxes is paid for the players

The Middle

As you move down the ranks, payment gets a lot muddier. You have players in lower leagues getting paid more than players in higher leagues because they are popular and can draw a crowd. Veterans command more money than rookies and bigs often command more than guards. Then you have to consider each players value if they are considered an import or a local.

It is all very confusing, but between 1k and 3k a month is pretty good in the mid level leagues, any more you are doing really well.

The Bottom

One of the very cool things about the European system is you have a huge range of players that are getting paid to do what they love.

At the lower levels the contracts get much more creative as well.

Often players that are just getting their start will take a contract from 0–300ish a month just to build their resume and hope they can move up. These contracts often include food, travel, and a place to live. Sometimes the teams will set the players up other jobs in order to make some extra money.
