It's definitely the vinegar, not the salt. The salt makes the vinegar solution more palatable, however.
The salt level in pickle juice (either from a pickle bottle or from the sports drink of that name) is way, way higher than in sports drinks, so I wouldn't use experience with sports drinks as evidence of anything, necessarily. I am not aware that many put much stock on potassium playing a key role in cramping.
