Former Arkansas women’s basketball assistant coach and current Las Vegas Aces guard Kelsey Plum clarified what she and a contingent of her fellow women’s basketball players are seeking during a podcast interview this week.

“We’re not asking to get paid what the men get paid,” Plum said. “We’re asking to get paid the same percentage of revenue shared.”

Plum was on The Residency Podcast on Monday when she made her remarks.

The WNBA and its players renegotiate their contract in 2025. Plum previously served as a graduate assistant at Arkansas under coach Mike Neighbors before focusing on her playing career. She was named All-Star Game MVP last season.
