Shelden Williams didn’t have much of an NBA career, but his post NBA career he is cashing out thanks to his marriage to Candace Parker.
Candace — one of the biggest stars in WNBA history — married Williams back in 2008, two years after he was selected 5th overall in the 2006 NBA Draft.
Despite the fact Williams reportedly made more than $12 MILLION during his 6-year NBA career, Parker has apparently done better … and agreed to shell out the $400k alimony payment. In exchange, she won’t have to pay ongoing spousal support.
The couple also divided the profits on their former home in Encino, CA which they just sold for $3.75 mil.
It isn’t a bad deal per se for Parker, because it is a lump payment and she owes nothing to Williams going forward.
