    New details have surfaced from collective bargaining agreement (CBA) discussions between the NBA and National Basketball Player’s Association (NBPA), highlighting several specific areas the league, its constituents and the players’ representatives are addressing for the next labor deal. Dec. 15 is the mutual opt-out date for the current CBA, and both NBA commissioner Adam Silver and NBPA executive director Tamika Tremaglio have led negotiations to get the next deal done. Chief among those discussions, the NBA is expected to end the one-and-done rule and reduce the age minimum from 19 years old to 18. This will allow many high school basketball players to declare for the NBA Draft after their senior year and forgo NCAA basketball. LeBron James is the most prominent active prep-to-pro player in the NBA, but the list of NBA fixtures to never play college basketball also includes Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady, Dwight Howard, three-time Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams, and current ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins. The NBA dabbled in college basketball waters when it created the G-League Ignite, a one-year developmental program...
    Q: Ira, would you? – Georges. A: This came in response to a tweet about the Utah Jazz apparently now being open to trade offers for Donovan Mitchell. First, what I would do doesn’t matter. But more than that, it comes down to the package offered (as with any deal, there can reach a point of too much going out). So if you go with a working framework of Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson and a minimal salary (to make the salary-cap math work) and then add the required draft choices, then, yes I would think it would have to be considered by the Heat. Of course, that also might not even get a return call from Danny Ainge (let’s assume that Andy Elisbrug and not Pat Riley makes that call). As for the extra salary required from the Heat, it could be Max Strus, Gabe Vincent, Omer Yurtseven or even Nikola Jovic (with a deal involving Jovic having to wait a month from when he was signed earlier this month). Also keep in mind that once/if Herro signs an extension,...
    We’ve made it: 2022 Brooklyn Nets free agency, also known as the most important offseason in (relocated) franchise history. The Nets have already made their biggest decision: Holding firm in negotiations with Kyrie Irving to force the All-Star guard to return to the team on what functions as a one-year deal worth $37 million. The Brooklyn Big 3 of Irving, Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons has been set. Now, it’s time to build the roster. As of the hours leading up to free agency, which kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Joe Harris, Seth Curry, Cam Thomas and Day’Ron Sharpe are the only other players with guaranteed contracts on the Nets’ roster. Sixth man Patty Mills met with Sean Marks in Brooklyn hours before Irving opted into his player option, according to a source, and ultimately declined the player option on the second year of his contract. The issue, of course, is the Nets have no real cap space to sign free agents and thus must display creative use of their salary cap exceptions to build a roster deep and...
    As the Miami Heat prepare for Thursday’s 6 p.m. start of the NBA’s free-agency negotiation period, a priority for the team apparently remains avoiding having to work under a hard salary cap on total payroll for the 2022-23 season. With an eye on possible trade – potentially a blockbuster trade – either this offseason or ahead of the February 2023 NBA trading deadline, the Heat have prioritized retaining salary-cap flexibility going forward, according to an NBA source familiar with the team’s thinning. Under the NBA’s complex salary-cap rules, a team is forced to work under a hard-cap payroll ceiling if it: – Utilizes all or part of the non-taxpayer mid-level exception, which this offseason stands at $10.3 million, on a free agent or multiple free agents. – Utilizes the bi-annual salary-cap exception, which this offseason stands at $4 million, on a free agent. – Acquires a player in a sign-and-trade transaction. (Sending out a player in a sign-and-trade does not trigger a hard cap.) The hard cap for 2022-23 NBA payroll is expected to be set at $155 million. By...
    Week in celebrity photos for Aug. 16-21, 2021 Mutual Funds: Everything You Need To Know As NBA free agency trickles to a close this summer, here is an early look at what to expect in 2022. When is 2022 free agency? The NBA has not officially set dates beyond the draft on June 23, 2022, but with the calendar returning to normal for the 2021-22 season, the opening of free agency will likely revert to 6 p.m. ET on June 30, 2022. What are the projected salary cap and luxury tax level figures? When the NBA officially announced its salary cap of $112.414 million and luxury tax level of $136.606 million for the 2021-22 season, the league also increased its projections to a $119 million salary cap and $145 million luxury tax level for the 2022-23 campaign, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania. What would that mean for player salaries in the 2022-23 season? Based on a salary cap projection of $119 million for the 2022-23 season, we can also estimate maximum salaries and cap exceptions in 2022 free...
    BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Celtics acquired guard Josh Richardson from Dallas on Saturday, a move that gives the Mavericks salary cap flexibility while adding young center Moses Brown. The trade involves teams with new leaders in the front office. Brad Stevens recently became Boston’s president of basketball operations after eight seasons as coach, ending Danny Ainge’s 18-year run in charge of personnel. Nico Harrison is the new general manager and president of basketball operations in Dallas after nearly two decades in which Donnie Nelson held one or both of those titles. Owner Mark Cuban fired Nelson in June, and Rick Carlisle resigned as coach a day later. Jason Kidd replaced Carlisle. The Mavericks got Richardson in a trade with Philadelphia last offseason, hoping his defense would boost the Luka Doncic-led club. A solid start was interrupted by a COVID-19 absence before Richardson was relegated to the bench late in the regular season and for the first-round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. It will be the fourth team in four years for Richardson, who was drafted in the...

What next for NBA suitors now that Giannis Antetokounmpo is off the salary cap table? The NBA’s vaunted free-agency class of 2021 is not so vaunted anymore, especially now that Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo has signed a supermax extension well beyond the coming year. For the few teams that felt they had a realistic shot at convincing the two-time reigning MVP to join them — namely the Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks and Toronto Raptors — all that planning goes by the wayside. The salaries that were shed, the contracts that were not extended beyond this season, the moves that were and were not made to ensure salary cap flexibility next year, they were based on a prayer that went unanswered. Antetokounmpo was a pipe dream for most teams, from the Los Angeles Lakers and their embarrassment of riches to the New York Knicks and their embarrassment to...
    Next1 of 6Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browseAlthough cap space was tight around the league, these five teams came out ahead after NBA free agency. Heading into 2020 NBA free agency, it appeared as though few teams would be able to make significant upgrades. Only a handful of squads had any salary-cap space at their disposal, and the free-agent class could be charitably described as mediocre at best. Once it became clear that Anthony Davis and Brandon Ingram weren’t going anywhere, the top prizes were… um, Fred VanVleet and Danilo Gallinari? That sounded like the recipe for an underwhelming free-agency period, but the following five teams weren’t deterred. Some managed to use their cap space or salary-cap exceptions to sign productive players to reasonable contracts. Others turned to the trade market for their biggest upgrades and rounded out their rosters with affordable depth signings. A few managed to retain their own biggest free agents, too. As the dust settles on the whirlwind that was free agency, these five teams appear to have clearly come out ahead. Next: 5....
    The LA Lakers are attempting to go for a back-to-back championship run this year. The 2020 NBA champions have made several moves in order to replenish their championship-winning roster. For the Lakers, one of the biggest challenges coming into this season was trying to clear cap space. They let go of players such as Rajon Rondo, Dwight Howard, Avery Bradley, and JaVale McGee in order to make room. Another move that the Lakers attempted to make to create cap space was to offload Luol Deng’s salary from their books. The Lakers offered Deng a 4-year, $72 million contract in 2016.

(Photo by Stephen Lew/Icon Sportswire/Corbis/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images) In order to create cap space for the 2019 free agency, the Lakers waived Luol Deng. However, this meant that his remaining $15 million salary had to be paid by the Lakers across the 2019-20, 20-21, and 21-22 seasons. This was...
    It’s one thing for James Harden to reportedly want a trade to the Nets. It’s another thing for it to actually happen. Thanks to the NBA’s tricky trade rules when it comes to matching dollar values, along with salary-cap implications for a Brooklyn team already paying Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving big money, it’s not as simple as the Rockets just sending Harden to the Nets and calling it a day. A potential trade might have to include a third team, or pay cuts for Durant or Irving, or both. That’s before even considering the matter of how KD, Irving and Harden would all share one basketball (but that’s a discussion for another day).  Here’s a look at the complex factors influencing the potential of a Harden move to Brooklyn. MORE: James Harden reportedly contemplating reunion with Kevin Durant in Brooklyn Matching salaries in a James Harden trade could require a third team NBA teams without salary cap space (which in this case applies to both the Nets and Rockets) have to come within a certain margin of each other when...

    With the NBA’s salary cap being a staple of free agency conversations, a new book takes a look at how it came to exist in the first place. Most casual NBA fans today have a working knowledge of the league’s salary cap. Frequent discussions on social media about free agency and trades depend on the people involved knowing a bit about the cap space of the teams involved, possible trade exceptions, an owner’s willingness to pay the luxury tax, and who has whose Bird Rights. However, far fewer fans are aware of the salary cap’s origins, and the battle that was waged between the NBA Players Association and the league itself nearly four decades ago. Following the settlement of the Oscar Robertson suit in 1976, which led to the ABA-NBA merger, players finally gained the right to become free agents, though in a limited manner. Unsurprisingly, player salaries, which had already begun to skyrocket due to competition between the two leagues, grew even higher. This frightened the owners who found themselves paying more and more for players in a league...
    The NBA and National Basketball Players Association agreed Monday on the start of the 2021-21 season, offseason timeline and a finalized salary cap. Negotiations between the league’s owners and players settled on a shortened 72-game season to start on Dec. 22 last week, and now the two sides have agreed to a financial framework for the 2020-21 season. Despite steep projected revenue declines due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020-21 salary cap will resemble last season’s at $109.1 million with the luxury tax line set at $132.6 million. The free-agency negotiating period will begin on Nov. 20 at 6 p.m. ET, two days after the draft. Signings can be made official starting at noon, Nov. 22. Here are some key ways these financial numbers will impact the Warriors next season, and beyond. Luxury tax relief The NBA will provide financial relief to teams paying the luxury tax, according to ESPN.com. Payments for tax-paying teams will decline in proportion to the league’s revenue at the end of the season. If the NBA sees a 30% decline in...

    Guns, lies and ballots set on fire: This is voter suppression in 2020 Europe gears up for more economic pain as Germany and France impose national lockdowns Reports: NBA salary cap would be $90M with normal formula, instead expected to remain flat © Xinhua/Liu Jie via Getty Images NBA owners and players split league revenue approximately 50-50. The league’s salary-cap system is built on that central fact. Each season, the NBA sets a salary cap based on projected revenue. The formula is designed to reach a salary-cap number that induces the total of player salaries to be worth… approximately 50% of league revenue.* *Of course, it’s impossible to hit that target exactly. So, a portion of players’ salaries are held in escrow. At the end of the season, the amount necessary to reach the approximate 50-50 split is returned to the players. The salary cap is currently 109.14 million. But revenue cratered this season and is expected to do so again next season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    Michigan judge strikes down gun ban at polling places Burger King is taking a page out of McDonalds playbook, with Amazon-esque drive-thrus that predict what you want to order Report: Hawks trying to trade No. 6 pick to make playoff push © Steven Freeman/NBAE via Getty Images Trae Young and the Hawks entered last season with big hype. Young met it. The Hawks didn’t. Atlanta finished 20-47, which frustrated Young but at least brought the No. 6 pick in the 2020 NBA draft. Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer: The Hawks are shopping their first-round pick and intend to push for the playoffs, according to multiple league sources. Most draft rumors warrant significant skepticism. But this is the type of report that deserves the most trust. It comes from a credible writer. Atlanta has already shown a desire to accelerate its rise. To shop the No. 6 picks, the Hawks must talk to other teams – who might not rush to keep Atlanta’s intentions private. But that doesn’t mean the Hawks will trade the No. 6 pick. Who wants to...
    Offset Encourages Young People to Get to the Polls and Vote: Our Voices Matter How a Biden victory could impact your finances Report: NBA teams asking for higher luxury tax line for next season This NBA season, the salary cap was $109.1 million and the luxury tax line was $132.6 million. Next season was projected to jump to a $115 million cap and a $139 luxury tax line (that was after the impact from the NBA’s issues with China were factored in). © Photo Illustration by Igor Golovniov/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images Then the coronavirus hit. The NBA and the players’ union are still negotiating next year’s cap and tax, but it is not expected to drop below $109 million. However, teams had been budgeting for that $139 luxury tax line and are now lobbying the league to keep the tax line high, in part to allow player movement, reports Bobby Marks of ESPN. One thing that is unanimous is that teams are lobbying for the tax level to come in at $139M and apron at $145M. If the...
    Protests against Daniel Prudes death continue Fall semester brings no relief to struggling college towns and the businesses that rely on students The NFL prevented the Saints from pulling off an NBA-style sign-and-trade for Jadeveon Clowney The Tennessee Titans signed Jadeveon Clowney to a one-year contract earlier on Sunday, but if the Saints had their way, they may have been able to pull off a unique move to get him. © Provided by The Comeback The Saints were forced to get creative thanks to their salary cap issues, and according to ESPN’s Mike Triplett, they approached the league office with a proposal similar to the NBA’s sign-and-trade practice. Unfortunately for New Orleans, the league rejected the idea. Via Triplett: A source confirmed that the Saints explored the idea of a unique sign-and-trade deal with an unspecified team to help them fit Clowney’s salary under the cap, as the NFL Network first reported. However, the NFL said such a deal would not be allowed. The idea was for another team to sign Clowney and pay his signing bonus — then...

What about next season? Coronavirus will likely remain a danger on Dec. 1, when the league hopes to begin. That threatens fan attendance. Heck, that could undermine teams playing at all in their home markets. All 30 teams, rather than just 22, adds complications. Even if the season gets off the ground, there will be financial issues.

    Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images Patrick Mahomes just earned a 10-year, $503 million extension. How does that compare to the highest-paid NBA players? As NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday, Patrick Mahomes has agreed to a 10-year, $503 million extension with the Kansas City Chiefs, $477 million of which is tied to guarantee mechanisms. It surpasses MLB’s Mike Trout as the largest contract in sports history, and in the wake of such jaw-dropping numbers, it’s only natural to wonder how such a gargantuan NFL contract compares to some of the NBA‘s highest-paid stars. Taking a look at each league’s salary cap is a good place to start. The NBA salary cap for the 2019-20 season was $109.1 million, with teams being allowed to go over the cap to re-sign their own players. The luxury tax threshold was set at $132.6 million, and for next season, the projected salary cap and luxury tax lines are $115 million and $141 million, respectively. The NFL salary cap for the upcoming 2020 season is nearly double the NBA’s cap, at $198.2 million....
