How They Were Signed: Cap Space

December 6 2013 at 11:59pm CDT By Jonathan Nehring

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.
