I can't seem to find much about Hungarian basketball. Looks like Reese could have made as little as $1000 per month with all taxes and expenses paid.

What about young basketball players from America who do not have NBA pedigrees on their resumes? How much can they make in EuroLeague? For non-star players like that, they can expect to get paid in the range of $65,000 to $100,000, depending on the team and the country. In many cases, the salaries are tax free and the teams also provide cars and apartments to the players.
