How They Were Signed: Cap Space

Continuing Hoops Rumors overview as to how each player currently on an NBA roster was signed, we will look at the players who were signed using a team’s cap space. Ironically, more players are signed to a team’s roster using a salary cap exception than are signed to a team’s roster using a team’s salary cap space.

For the 2013/14 NBA season, each team has a salary cap of $58.679M. Players signed to an exception still count against this salary cap. For example, the Bulls haven’t signed any player to their current roster using cap space but are $20M above the cap.
