Ja Morant has a sky-high standard in terms of financial standpoint.
In an interview with Jabari Young of Forbes, the Memphis Grizzlies star made it known that he is vying to become a billionaire at age 30.
“Me and my mom started a saying right after the season: ‘Be a billionaire by 30,'” Morant said. “That’s my goal. So I have seven years.”
So far, only Michael Jordan and LeBron James have made it through the cut amongst NBA players who managed to breach the $1 billion mark of net worth. Jordan went in back in 2014, while James compiled the lucrative value just from last year.
Morant is currently in the midst of his five-year, $193 million contract with the Grizzlies which may reach up to $231 million in worth should he complete the franchise’s placed conditions. So far, he managed to earn a total of $27.5 million in his last three years within the association.
As such, the superstar-in-the-making guard can still amass more money with plenty of endorsement deals attached to him, most notably with Nike who is set to release his “Ja 1” signature shoe this 2023.
