Ice Cube’s BIG3 Offers Caitlin Clark Historical Deal To Join The League

Caitlin Clark, the star player for the Iowa Hawkeyes and a top prospect for the upcoming WNBA draft, is in line to potentially make history as basketball’s first-ever $5 million woman. Sources close to the situation revealed to TMZ that Ice Cube‘s Big3 league has offered Caitlin an unprecedented deal worth $5 million to play in just 10 games – 8 regular season games and possibly 2 playoff games.

In addition to the substantial compensation for playing in the league, Caitlin would also have the opportunity to earn more through merchandising and sponsorships. The most unique aspect of the deal is that Caitlin would be allowed to play in both the Big3 league and the WNBA, as there are only 2 regular season games that could potentially conflict with her possible team, the Indiana Fever, and their playing schedule.

Caitlin’s exceptional talent and record-breaking performance in college basketball this season have made her a highly sought-after player. With her recent achievement of becoming the all-time scoring leader in NCAA history, surpassing “Pistol” Pete Maravich‘s record, it’s no surprise that the Big3 would make such a generous offer to bring her on board.

Ice Cube has expressed his excitement about the potential of having Caitlin join the Big3 league, citing her as a generational athlete who can achieve great success in the league. He also believes that this offer could help break down barriers for women athletes and provide them with more opportunities to earn a living in the offseason without having to go overseas.

In an Instagram post Cube said, “We intended the offer to remain private while Caitlin Clark plays for the championship. But I won’t deny what’s now already out there: BIG3 made a historic offer to Caitlin Clark. Why wouldn’t we? Caitlin is a generational athlete who can achieve tremendous success in the BIG3. The skeptics laughed when we made Nancy Lieberman the first female coach of a men’s pro team, and she won the championship in her first year. Then Lisa Leslie won it all in year two. With our offer, Caitlin Clark can make history and break down even more barriers for women athletes.”

“America’s women athletes should not be forced to spend their off seasons playing in often dismal and dubious foreign countries just to make ends meet. And they should have more than just one professional option in the US at a time when American pro sports leagues are being infiltrated by autocratic, anti-women regimes such as Qatar. Our pathbreaking offer to Caitlin Clark demonstrates that BIG3 now offers another choice for athletes.”

Overall, the offer from the Big3 league to Caitlin Clark represents a significant milestone for women athletes in basketball, and could potentially pave the way for more female players to participate in professional leagues in the future.
