First-round selections in the NBA Draft are assigned a “scale” value depending on what pick they’re selected with. The first pick has the highest assigned value, the second pick has the second-highest assigned value, and so on.
Below is the first-year salary scale value for each first-round selection in the 2022 NBA Draft (based on the 2022-23 rookie scale chart provided by RealGM). Players can sign for as little as 80% or as much as 120% of the scale value of where they were selected. Rookie contracts last for four years, the last two being team-option years.
