WNBA four-time All-Star Liz Cambage calls out inequities in league's pay structure

Free agent center Liz Cambage lit into the WNBA and its pay structure on Tuesday, putting into doubt whether she will spend another season in the league.

Cambage appears to be referring to reports that Storm forward Breanna Stewart re-signed to return to Seattle on a one-year supermax deal worth $228,000 a season.

New Las Vegas Aces coach Becky Hammon is expected to be the first WNBA coach to earn more than $1 million in salary.

The league ratified a new collective bargaining agreement in 2020, which provided a rise in salary cap space for each team and an increase in compensation for players.

"ahhh yes the @WNBA where a head coach can get paid 4X the highest paid players super max contract. lmao and y’all think imma spend another season upgrading my seat on a flight to get to games out of my own pocket," Cambage wrote on Twitter.

Cambage, 30, is an unrestricted free agent after spending the last two seasons with the Aces. She made $221,450 during the 2021 season.

Tuesday is the first day that players can sign with new teams, signaling the league's free agency period.

In five WNBA seasons, the four-time All-Star has career averages of 16.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.
