Kelsey Plum Contract & Salary Breakdown

Last Updated: September 11, 2023
Playing on a team that boasts a slew of All-Stars, Kelsey Plum finds a way to stick out. Boardroom jumps into the details of the Kelsey Plum contract with the Aces.

To say Kelsey Plum has lived up to expectations as a WNBA player would be an understatement. Here’s a list of what the Las Vegas Aces star has accomplished since being drafted first overall in 2017:

  • 2022 WNBA Champion
  • 2022 WNBA All-Star Game MVP
  • 2022 All-WNBA First Team
  • 2021 WNBA Sixth Player of the Year
  • Two-time WNBA All-Star (2022, 2023)

And those are just her WNBA accolades, leaving out all the records she broke on the NCAA level at Washington and the gold medal she won for Team USA in women’s 3v3 hoops at the 2020 Olympics. Plum is looking to add to this list, helping her team sit atop the Western Conference of the WNBA by a wide margin while averaging 18.7 points and 4.5 assists per game this season.

A pivotal piece for the defending champs, Plum’s contract will be the second-largest cap hit on the team next season, just behind MVP A’ja Wilson — Boardroom breaks down Plum’s current contract.

Kelsey Plum Contract Extension & Salary Details

Years: 2
Total value: $400,000
Average annual value: $200,000
Free agency: 2025

Just a week after earning WNBA All-Star Game MVP in 2022, the Aces signed their southpaw shooter to a two-year, $400,000 contract extension. At the time, Plum had one year remaining on a three-year, $423,250 contract she signed after playing out her entry-level deal.

Plum will turn 30 in the final year of this extension, but if she’s able to maintain the level of play she’s had over the last couple of seasons, it wouldn’t be surprising to see her cash in when she hits free agency in 2025.
