But MCW has yet to touch a dime of his salary this season. That’s $2.2 million guaranteed this season (and $2.3 million next season) that he is just putting in the bank.
All of his money right now is going into a trust set up by his family, as reported at the Philadelphia Inquirer (via The 700 Level at CSNPhilly.com).
Nowadays, (his mother) Carter-Zegarowski and her best friend, Tracie Tracy, are running his management team. They are taking a proactive approach to make sure he doesn’t spend all his money in a couple of years.
His rookie contract guarantees him $4.5 million over his first two seasons. He could make a total of $10 million if the Sixers pick up the final two seasons of his contract.
But his salary is deposited into a trust he can’t touch for three years. Carter-Williams is living off endorsement deals with Nike and Panini trading cards.
He’s likely to have a few more endorsement deals rolling in soon the way he has played as a rookie averaging 17 points and 7.1 assists per game.
