The WNBA is investigating whether Vegas tourism authority can sponsor Aces players for $100K each

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The WNBA is investigating whether the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority’s $100,000 annual sponsorship to Aces player for this season and next is legal. The sponsorship does not violate the WNBA’s salary cap because the Las Vegas authority did not orchestrate it with the club. But other teams are likely to raise questions about the fairness of the sponsorship and whether it violates the spirit of the cap rules. Authority CEO Steve Hill says the sponsorship was done “the right way.” He says the team had nothing to do with it.
