Very very little for an NIT. 11 of the spots went to teams who won their conferences in the regular season but didn't win their tournament, and missed the NIT. And there are a lot more than 21 teams more qualified than us for at large spots.
And Weaver has already said we won't accept a CBI or CIT bid. Those conferences make you pay money up front and if you don't recoup it thorugh ticket sales, you lose money. And there is very little TV revenue in those tournaments; last year the CBI had some games on HDNet, and the CIT had some games on a few Fox regional sports channels, and that was about it.
