Who are the highest-paid players in the WNBA? A list of the top 10 salaries in 2024.

 Viewership, overall ticket sales, and the WNBA's social media presence have made it a constant topic of discussion on sports talk shows and podcasts.

While that hasn't translated into players' pockets yet, as the salary cap for the 2024 season is $1,463,200, more players are starting to see the dividends of the increased eyeballs on the league.

While Indiana Fever rookie sensation Caitlin Clark will only make $76,000 in base salary this season, she will take home more than $500,000 in 2024, which includes money from player marketing agreements with league and team deals. Clark makes millions more in endorsements which includes deals with Nike, State Farm, Gatorade, Xfinity, and Panini.

Aces guard Jackie Young led the way in the annual value of contracts when she signed a two-year, $504,900 contract extension with the team in 2022.
