    The NBA minimum salary is 543 thousand for this year and will be slightly higher next year. Once you sign a real contract, it is guaranteed even if you are cut. The Sixers have 15 games left which is 18% of the season. That means Shawn is guaranteed 99 thousand for the remainder of the year as 99 is 18 % of 543. Add the 99 grand to the 30 grand he received for the 10 day contract and he will earn almost 130 grand from the NBA this year. He also had one of the best D League contracts around where he probably earned close to 50 grand. If he truly has a 2 year deal (which is the remainder of this year and next year in all likelihood), he will exceed 700 thousand in the two years following his last season in college. I hope he invest it wisely. Many people who come into a lot of money quickly lose it rapidly as they do not know how to deal with so much so soon. This news does indicate he made the right decision in playing his fourth year. Many, including myself, doubted he would ever make it to the NBA and thought he should go to Europe. He proved us wrong which is something I am happy about.

    I hope he has the right person helping him financially, and not a gravy train relative. After Uncle Sam takes a big wet bite out of his azs, the remainder can diminish VERY quickly.

    He should take a lesson from Marshawn Lynch.

    EP played exceptionally well. He had a double double with 10 points and 13 rebounds. He also had 4 assists, 3 steals, and one block. The block was when he came from behind to swat a layup by Long. One of his steals came with a few seconds remaining in regulation. He prevented the Sixers from attempting a game winning shot. He has turned out to be a fine pro which many of us doubted he would be able to do so. Shawn will get lots of time with the Sixers summer league team and in preseason next year.

    A great night for Shawn. 18 pts on 8-10 shooting, 7 reb, 2 steals and an assist in 19 mins. He was +32 in on court differential and had a highlight put back

    ESPN website review of game starts with career games by Long and Saric lead Sixers to road victory over Bulls. Shawn is doing better in his short time in the NBA than I ever imagined he would. NBA is one of most difficult sports fraternities in world to break into You have to admire young man for following his dream
