Ionescu is this year’s cover for the NBA 2K24 WNBA edition. Just this summer she broke the WNBA record for most 3-pointers made. She beat none other than Steph Curry in a 3-point shootout. So how much is the 2020 number one Draft pick Sabrina Ionescu’s net worth after lighting up the WNBA for 3 years now?

Sabrina Ionescu – is she about to become a free agent, or has she signed a contract extension?

After setting up an unprecedented colleague record, she happens to be the only player in NCAA Division I basketball to have recorded 2,000 points, 1,000 assists, and 1,000 rebounds, Sabrina Ionescu joined the WNBA in 2020. The New York Liberty picked her with the number one overall pick that year and she has been instrumental for them since.

Current contract’s full breakdown

Initially, Sabrina Ionescu’s salary after joining the Liberty was $86,701 per year on a 3-year contract. Ionescu soon became a major star and big player for the Liberty though. Still, her current contract is the final year of her rookie arrangements so as of 2023 Ionescu continues to earn only $86,701 per year.

Without any new arrangements, she would have become an unrestricted free agent at the end of 2023. Liberty couldn’t allow that in a million years and in May 2023 Sabrina Ionescu signed a contract extension with much-improved terms.

Contract extension details

Sabrina Ionescu’s contract extension kicks off in 2024 and is for 2 years. Next season she will be earning £202,000 (a vast improvement on her current terms), while in 2025 her contract will bring her $208,060 in income.

As Sabrina Ionescu is still on her rookie contract terms she has earned only just over $280,000 from her WNBA career so far. Ionescu played abroad in the off-season last year and this brought her another $100,000 from basketball.

Other sources of income for Sabrina Ionescu

Sabrina Ionescu is very successful at finding other ways to supplement her income. She often appears on talk shows and podcasts, Nike just recently released her own signature shoe. Ionescu will be the front cover of the new NBA 2K24 WNBA edition. All that has brought her an extra $500-700,000 over the last 3 years.

Sabrina Ionescu’s net worth

Sabrina Ionescu’s net worth as of March 2023 is around $1 million.

She is set to increase her net worth significantly very soon though as from the start of 2024 she will enter her vastly improved contract extension and will start getting endorsements from her recently released signature shoes. So, we don’t think Sabrina Ionescu will have financial problems any time soon and as it seems the extremely talented player is set for a long and glamorous basketball career.
