Do you know what the average salary of a NBA player is for the 2018 season? For the vast majority of people reading this article it's more money than they will ever make for their entire lives. 



The average salary for a NBA player is derived by taking the salary cap for each team and then dividing it by 14 players. Each NBA team is required to carry at least 13 players on its roster but the CBA (collective bargaining agreement) between the owners and players guarantees a league-wide average of 14 players per team per year.

For the 2018 season, which begins in October of 2017 and ends in June of 2018, the salary cap for each team is set at $101 million. If we divide the $101 million by the 14 players per team that the NBA guarantees we get the average salary listed below.
