How Scottie Pippen’s net worth was built

He played in the small forward position, but he is known as one of the most versatile players of the game.
As the official site of the NBA explains, “Pippen orchestrated an offense like a point guard, rebounded like a power forward, scored like a shooting guard and defended on the perimeter like few others.”
Pippen was drafted in 1987 by the Seattle Supersonics as the fifth overall pick. He was traded to the Bulls just a few weeks later and remained with the team for eight seasons.
As of May, Pippen’s net worth is $50 million, according to TheRichest.com. Pippen’s net worth is supplemented by product endorsements, including Nike, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and Right Guard, among others.
