Being a top-five pick in the NBA Draft comes with heavy expectations, like comparisons to Steph Curry and Steve Nash, but there are also some major perks… namely millions and millions of dollars no matter what you do on the court.
Hawks draft pick Trae Young, the fifth selection in the NBA Draft, has over $15 million headed his way over the next three seasons according to Real GM. He recently spent a chunk of that on his first ride as a pro baller — a custom matte black Audi R8, which set Trae back $138,700, at least.
Darren Jefflo shared before and after pictures of Trae’s new car on Facebook, as well as video of it leaving the showroom to meet him at the airport:

I know what the boring money savvy people out there are thinking: stupid purchase, cars are depreciating assets. Undoubtedly true, but at least Trae chose a car that holds resell potential. Carfax shows a number of used R8s are on the market for over $100,000.
