The Aces guard isn’t the biggest name on the reigning champs, but she’s been one of the most important pieces. Boardroom breaks down the Chelsea Gray contract with Las Vegas.
Fans and media in WNBA circles have thrown the term “superteam” around a lot lately. Naturally, it should come as no surprise that the league’s two superteams — the Las Vegas Aces and New York Liberty — were the ones that ultimately advanced to the 2023 WNBA Finals.
From the Aces’ perspective, A’ja Wilson, Kelsey Plum, and Jackie Young lead the way in the scoring column, but Chelsea Gray has been a dynamic facilitator. Putting up more than seven assists per game in both the 2023 regular season and postseason, the Duke alumna is one of the key reasons Vegas has made consecutive finals appearances.
But how much are the Aces paying their star point guard? Boardroom breaks down the details behind Las Vegas’s Chelsea Gray contract.
Chelsea Gray Contract & Salary Details
Total Contract Value: $392,534
Free Agency: 2025
Gray is one of three Aces players making in the $200,000 neighborhood this season. All three — the other two being Wilson and Plum — are under contract for next season as well. In the simplest terms, that means the Aces are set up to be at the top of the WNBA next year as well…and with the league CBA likely headed for renegotiation after that, it just might be possible to keep this superteam intact for a while.
For Gray specifically, the $196,267 marks the highest annual salary of her career. So far, it appears she’s well worth the money; in 2023 she also put up her highest scoring and assist averages of her career. Gray will earn the same amount next season as well, and with some big money coming off the books in Vegas, the team should be able to continue building around this core.
It seems the only question that remains is this: How many more championships will Chelsea Gray and the Las Vegas Aces earn in what is still a wide-open title window?
