I believe the contract starts with the % of salary cap and then increases from there according to set percentages.How does it work with max contracts and the % of the cap? Is it a % of the cap that year, or is a % of the cap whatever it happens to be in future years? In other words, do you sign a contract with an absolute salary, or does the contract say you always get 30% of the cap?
Here's our contracts page.Ok...so how does this likely impact the Celtics specifically? Yes, I know they'll have less money to spend, obviously. I mean someone with a good working knowledge of their current and future cap situations...can you give us some likely impact?
How much did the injuries to Curry/Klay/Durant cost?Revenue down. Morey tweet cost the league up to 200 million. Will have impact on trade deadline moves.
Title changed.Yeah, can we change the thread title? It suggests that the salary cap itself is going to be lower next year, not that the projection is very slightly lower than what it was in September.
Edit: not blaming the OP because the ESPN headline in woj's tweet is also highly misleading.
As much as I sports hate LeBron that’s a fantastic quote.Do we have any idea what happens to next year's cap if the NBA decides they need to play games with no crowds? Is next year locked already and the revenue drop would go on the year after that?
Edit: LeBron has an opinion:
"“We play games without the fans? Nah, that’s impossible,” James said. “I ain’t playing if I ain’t got the fans in the crowd. That’s who I play for. I play for my teammates, and I play for the fans. That’s what it’s all about. So if I show up to an arena and there ain’t no fans in there, I ain’t playing. They can do what they want to do.”"
