The addition of Kamilla Cardoso, the third overall pick who played a pivotal role in South Carolina’s victory in the 2024 NCAA March Madness women’s tournament, will now give the Windy City not just one, but two national champions, joining the ranks of Bayou Barbie and the LSU Tigers who claimed victory in 2023.

In addition to her recent triumph, Angel clinched an ESPY for Best Breakthrough Athlete in 2023, making headlines for shattering numerous records in a single season.


Angel’s remarkable achievements haven’t gone unnoticed, landing her lucrative NIL deals that boast substantial paychecks. Earlier this year, she secured the 8th spot for the highest NIL earnings, according to reports.

According to reports, Angel has signed a lucrative four-year deal worth $324,383 with the Chicago Sky. Her annual earnings will climb steadily, starting at $73,439 in the initial year and peaking at $93,636 in the fourth year, contingent upon Sky exercising her fourth-year option.

This figure is only marginally below Caitlin Clark’s salary, the first pick for the Indiana Fever, who is slated to reach $97,582 by her fourth year.


Angel also stands to rake in extra rewards such as a $5,150 bonus for clinching the WNBA Rookie of the Year title and an additional $2,575 for making it into the All-Star game.

Angel’s situation stands in stark contrast to her NBA counterparts. Last year’s seventh overall NBA draft pick, Bilal Coulibaly, inked a $30 million deal with the Washington Wizards.

On the other hand, WNBA salaries peak at around $240,000, a figure lower than even the minimum earnings of an NBA player, as per reports. Many WNBA players bolster their income by competing internationally during the off-season.

These partnerships include heavyweight brands such as PlayStation, Raising Canes, McDonald’s, Coach, Wingstop, Outback Steakhouse, and Amazon. Her NIL deals in 2022 and 2023 were worth approximately $1.7 million with her having a net worth of $2 million.
