Good lord. Sounds like most of the compensation is "exposure"Yes, the G is for Gatorade, who sponsors everything to do with that league.
”Today we have the Salt Lake City Gatorades vs. the College Park Gatorades in the Gatorade Game of the Week, sponsored by Gatorade.” When you get called up to the NBA, it’s called a “Gatorade Call-Up”, for example.
The problem with the G-league is that it pays $35k / year and you have to pay all of your own housing, food, nutrition, etc. You’re probably better off staying in college with free housing, free food, free S&C, free gear, and more visibility (more people watch NCAAM than G-League).
