Salary information is wrong. The drafted female players for 2018/2019 season will be paid 150,000 USD including tax while male players will be paid 300,000 USD excluding tax+ alpha. Korean star KYK complained of this discriminatory regulation.

Re: @denz lidang
These are the players who are going to be tested in the tryout and 6 out of the 34 players will go through the tryout and get a draft.
