The Athletic's Shams Charania reports that prize money for the championship team of the NBA's In-Season Tournament beginning in the 2023-24 season is $500,000 per player.

In-Season Tournament was included in the new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between NBA and NBPA.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the event will include pool-play games baked into the regular-season schedule starting in November -- with eight teams advancing to a single-elimination tournament in December. The Final Four will be held at a neutral site, with Las Vegas prominent in the discussion.

Each in-season tournament game would count toward regular-season standings; the two finalists would ultimately play 83 regular-season games.
