does anyone know how nba players receive their millions of dollars per year? do they get paid in monthly installments? bi-weekly installments? I'm just curious how they get their $$$.

I think they get a lump sum + 10 installments per year. Something like that.

I think it depends on the structure. Bonuses get paid in a lump sum. So if you get a $1M signing bonus for instance, I think you just get that up front.

The annual salary most likely gets paid in installments - so monthly or bi-weekly or whatever. Of course, I'm purely guessing.

I think the normal procedure are biweekly instalments. But it depends, deals can be frontloaded with a lot of money paid upfront and then prorated for the remaining years of the deal. That's what teams trying to sign away restricted free agents do.

it depends on the contract.

i know some get like 80% (something like that) of their annual contract, at the start of the season.

i am pretty sure the player can decide how they want it. ( start of season, monthly, weekly)

player still get paid if they are cut, so it doesn't matter.

Does anybody know what the per diem allowance is these days? I remember reading in Magic Johnson's autobiography they received about $40 a day back then.
