I was wondering if he was getting any decent $$$ for this, so I did some research... not great news:

Quote
The common misconception is that players who sign non-guaranteed contracts to participate in training camp will receive a salary. They don’t. Like summer league, players will receive roughly $127 in per diem, hotel and all travel expenses to take part. The one added bonus is that players are eligible to receive $2,000 in camp compensation per week for roughly four weeks. However, if you make the team, then your training camp compensation gets deducted from your first check on November 15.
:adios:

So roughly $11,810 a month. Not bad.

From here: https://www.sbnation.com/platform/amp/nba/2017/7/18/15985262/nba-two-way-contract-2017-summer-league-agents-worried-about-them

Here are the specific details for the new two-way contract:

They will act as a 16th and 17th roster spot for NBA teams beginning next season (2017-18).

The player can spend up to 45 days with the NBA team that signs him, although no time is guaranteed.

The rest of the player’s contract must be spent in the G-League, either for the team’s affiliate or another’s if the team he signs with doesn’t have a G-League affiliate yet. For the 2017-18 season, the G-League will represent 26 of the NBA’s 30 teams.

The player’s pay comes on a tiered salary system, which can last one or two seasons. While in the G-League, the player will make $75,000. It’s a significant increase from the current pay structure for G-Leaguers, who cannot make more than $26,000 with a one-way G-League deal.

When in the NBA, a player with a two-way contract will accrue a day of service and make money consistent with an NBA rookie minimum, which is about $816,000 next season. If a player spends 45 days in the NBA, he could make around $204,000.

In total, a two-way player who spends the maximum amount of time in the NBA would make $279,000.

That’s a lot more money than the G-League has ever presented its players.

When you consider that the teams don't have any fans and don't sell any merchandise it's really not that crazy.

I mean if the objective of the league was to earn a profit from merch and attendance it probably wouldn't exist.

and that is maybe the best "fact" the NCAA has to not pay players - there isn't much of a market for minor league sports in the US of A.

but back on topic, I applaud Pullen for taking his shot at playing in the NBA - It sounds like signing the 2 way contract limits his earning vs what he would make in Europe but at 27 it's time to give it a shot.
