Athletes’ financial handbook
The Athletes’ financial handbook was created in order to provide players who will be making the transition to professional basketball with financial information and tools to start their careers on the right track. A report issued by Sports Illustrated in its edition of March 23rd, 2009 shows that athletes are under financial stress within two years after retirement and that an estimated 60 percent of players are bankrupt within five years of retiring.
We strongly encourage our athletes to go through this online Athletes financial handbook. A free printable version as well as the worksheets that are presented in the document are downloadable in this section.
We hope this will increase your awareness, and help you to move forward with financial stability and success. Pass the message on to your teammates!
