Unrestricted free agent Liz Cambage is hitting back at the WNBA after it was announced that Aces’ coach Becky Hammon would be making more than $1 million a year.

“Ahhh yes the WNBA, where a head coach can get paid 4X the highest paid players super max contract,” she wrote. “Lmao and y’all think imma spend another season upgrading my seat on a flight to get to games out of my own pocket.”

Cambage has spent five seasons in the WNBA dating back to 2011, spending the last two seasons in Las Vegas. The Australian center averaged 14.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game in 2021.

She has spent significant amounts of time playing overseas, including from 2012-2018 when she split time between China and her native Australia. She rejoined the league in 2018 as a member of the Dallas Wings and was the WNBA’s scoring leader for that season. She’s been named an All-Star four times and was the WNBA’s peak performer in 2018.

An unrestricted free agent, Cambage is considered one of the top players on the market for this offseason.
