The Suns have big money to shell out. They have lost their two highest paid players last year, and are trying to prove they wont lose any more young talent. So if Rankine was on $80k this year, and next, the GC just re did his contract so that he is on $250-300k in years 2, 3 and 4.
Of course he would sign.
JACK Lukosius has been dubbed the best key-position AFL draft prospect since St Kilda legend Nick Riewoldt.www.foxsports.com.auThe earlier players are taken in the draft, the more cash they earn in their first year. First-round draftees receive more money than second-rounders, who also earn more than draftees taken in the third round or later.
For instance, players taken in the top 20 picks this November will be on a base salary of $95,000 in 2019. They’ll also receive $4000 per senior match and bonuses for reaching certain game milestones (ie. they’ll earn a $12,000 bonus if they play over 15 games).
Those figures, under the CBA, will increase for their second year in 2020, with the base salary jumping to anywhere between $100,000 and $130,000, depending on the amount of games the players have played in their first season in 2019. (The full player payment breakdown can be viewed in the CBA on the AFL Players’ Association’s website.)
