With the NBA Playoffs winding down, we'll take a quick look at the projected payouts for each postseason team in 2018-19. Since the official playoff bonus pool figure hasn't been released yet, we'll base these numbers off of last year's amount, which came in at $20M, as playoff pools have had a pattern of being the same two years in a row. Should this change, we'll update this article accordingly. All payouts figures are team totals that are then divvied up among the club's players.
Warriors & Raptors
As it stands, the Golden State Warriors stand to reel in $4M ($272,800 per player) for losing the Finals, & $5.2M ($352,500 per player) should they win it.
The Toronto Raptors stand to receive $3.99M($266,200 per player) for a Finals loss, or $5.1M ($345,800 per play) if they win it all.
