Aussie hotshot set to shoot up NBA rich list

BASKETBALL: Australian Joe Ingles will reportedly meet with the LA Clippers - the team that waived him after five 2014 pre-season games before his NBA career began - as he eyes a massive free agency deal.

The news follows reports that suggested the Orlando Magic were planning a four-year, $US60 million offer for the Utah Jazz's point-forward, now one of the NBA's most accurate three-point shooters.

Patty Mills holds the richest current NBA contract for an Aussie player, with the free agent point guard re-signing with the Spurs for an average $US12.5 million per season
