A Tale of Two Gaps
A LOOK AT THE COMPENSATION GAP BETWEEN ROOKIES AND TOP VETERANS IN THE NBA AND NFL
With the new NFL CBA and rookie wage scale and the already established NBA rookie wage scale, we wanted to take a look at the difference between the two leagues in how they are compensating their incoming players via the draft, but also how compensation compares for the veteran superstars of each league as well.
We used the average annual value (AAV) for 2012 rookies and 2012 top veterans between the NBA and NFL for an accurate and consistent comparison.
Some interesting results were found with the NFL rookie scale compared to the NBA rookie scale.
