    The NBA's minimum contract per annum is ~ $300,000 USD.

    10-day contracts are pro-rated based on that figure.

    Therefore, divide 300k by 82, and then multiply by 10.

    Answer = ~ $36,585.37

    Well, it's not a 10-game contract, it's a 10 day contract. You might get 4 games out of a 10-day.

    True - I missed that one. Thanks.

    Now I have to go back to work on that one.

    EDIT: I found something in the NBA Players Association website (though a little vague - legal folks please explain further)

    Well, then, just use what you did, but don't multiply by 10, and you've got the per game rate of $3,658.54 per game.

    I'd be praying for back to backs

    $3,600 for what 0-20 minutes (10 day scrub) of work is awesome. Only in America.

    Even with guys in college who could step in right away and be better than some guys and also the same can be said for some in Europe that "scrub" is still one of the 500-600 best basketball players in the world, the world of what 6 billion +.

    You really think that what you see on the court is all the work they do?

    Not likely...
