According to CNN, Caitlin Clark has received an offer “to join the Big3, a 3-on-3 professional basketball league founded by Ice Cube that has employed several former NBA players.”

TMZ reported that the offer is worth $5 million. “$5 million to play 8 regular season games and possibly 2 playoff games! That’s it … 10 games for $5 mil, guaranteed,” the site reported, adding that she could still play in the WNBA and enjoy merchandising and sponsorship deals.

Ice Cube wrote on X, “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.”

Ice Cube continued, “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.”

He continued: “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.”

Fan Sided reported, “Offensively, the NBA player who mirrors Clark’s production most is Luka Doncic.”
