Denver Nuggets mascot Rocky is the highest-paid mascot in the NBA with a $625K annual salary, according to Boardroom.

Rocky makes 10 times the average salary of an NBA mascot (roughly $60K a year).

In general, NBA mascots are a key part of team entertainment across the league.

For the 2021-22 season, the NBA minimum for players' salaries was between $925,258 and $2.6M per year. The reason for the salary range is that players get their minimum salary based on their past experience.

Undrafted free agents and second-round picks are often recipients of minimum-salary contracts.

In this case, Rocky made $300K less than the lowest-paid NBA players in 2021-22.

In the 2022-23 campaign, the NBA minimum will raise and will range from $1,017,781 to $2,905,851.
