    Here's the answer, and it's from 2013

    The average NBA player will make $24.7 million in his career. That is based on an average salary of $5.2 million and an average career length of 4.8 years and is $18.6 million more than the career earnings for the average NFL player ($6.1 million).

    Welcome to ZagNation Julian Strawther!!!!

    Thrilled he’s a Zag. All the speculation about Suggs needs to be shelved; Julian Strawther is a huge commitment for Zags and he deserves our full attention, particularly on his own thread.

    Julian is heavily pushing the Suggs speculation! And hopefully with good reason!

    No the Suggs speculation doesn't need to stop that's what a fan board is for... Sure a players specific thread should be on topic to that player but the discussion is in context to Strawther tweeting about trying to get Suggs to commit... We're all excited and thrilled to land Strawther... It's a great day to be a zag

    Fair enough. You and Malastein are right about Strawther himself wanting Suggs to commit. I just want Julian to hear loud and clear how stoked ZagNation is about his commitment in his own right. Regardless of whether Suggs ZagsUp or not.

    As it stands right now, a great player, yet not as good as some of the 5* guys out there.

    However, I feel his ceiling is higher than most, if not all, the other SF's in this class.

    Special weapon/scorer. Fluid outside shot, mid-range game, can drive, score at the rim, and has an unstoppable floater.

    Actually reminds me of Ammo in a way.

    There is a reason he averages 28 ppg with 8 rebs, and number of assists.

    Might be a slow starter at GU, still developing strength (looks stronger than he is, very lean body, decent arms though), yet once he grows into his body, he will be an all-american type scorer for us.

    And we are brilliant at creating opportunities for wings within our offense. A specialty of ours before a number of combo guards and most recently a spot up shooter the last decade or so.

    By Year 2, Julian will be a star.

    he's actually already pretty big for a high school wing...listed at 6'7 215 which if accurate is basically the same size as brandon clarke (without the elite athleticism of course...strawther a good but not great athlete). the ammo comparisons hold some water from a scoring standpoint....maybe a bigger norvell with a more complete all-around offensive game.

    I’ve seen amazing shooters like Klay and Steph do the same. That’s life. Law of averages...
