I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

The well-known basketball player said that he would sign for whoever paid him the most.

It's OK. It would be much more informative if it gave the name of the basketball player. I'd probably also use "offered to pay him the most". They're only going to pay him after he signs for them.

This must be a BE/AE difference: 'signs for (a sports team)' is what we say in BE.
