He is probably on 2million euros after tax tops!

A simple breakdown based on some info I got from here:
http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saski_Baskonia
(in the table at the top-right, look for Presupuesto 2007/2008)
http://personal.telefonica.terra.es/...ia/informa.htm
(not clear how much confidence can we put on the budget given here, but i think it could be a good hint)

So last season's budget for TAU was around 13M€. It seems that this year's will be around 14M€. I don't think the roster payroll will be much above 80%, so it makes around 11M€. So if Tiago gets half of the payroll of TAU (5.5 M€), he would be making around 8 M$ (1 € = 1.5 $) and in that case he would be around 4 M$ (2.75 M€) after taxes. I don't think that's even possible, since they have 14 players more in the roster, some of then could be making around 1M€ per year (Rako, Prigioni)...

EDIT: I just found in the old news from a basque newspaper that the budget will be lowered this year by 1 or 1.5 M€. Lol, poor Tiago and half of the roster will be homeless in a few posts... The link is in spanish, but you could manage to translate
