WNBA Investigating Las Vegas Tourism Arm’s $100K Payments to Aces Players

May 20, 2024

On Friday, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority made waves on social media when Steve Hill, its president and CEO, told the Aces it will provide a $100,000 sponsorship to each member of the roster for the 2024 and ’25 seasons.

It’s the second time in as many seasons the Las Vegas Aces are under investigation after allegations of extra benefits to players and accusations by current Los Angeles Sparks forward Dearica Hamby, who said the team traded her because she was pregnant. (Hamby has filed a lawsuit saying the Aces discriminated against her, and coach Becky Hammon was suspended two games for her treatment of Hamby.)  FOS
