Hoops Rumors took a look ahead at each franchise’s salary cap situation heading into the offseason, and the inevitable free agent frenzy that occurs every year when the weather turns hot. We went through the contracts on each teams’ books for next season, minus any cap holds for unrenounced free agents.
While the exact amount of the 2015/16 salary cap won’t be announced until July, the cap is projected to come in somewhere around $67.4MM, with the luxury tax threshold projected at approximately $81MM. This year’s $63.065MM cap represented an increase of 7.7% over 2013/14, which was well above the league’s projected annual increase of 4.5%. It would appear that these figures are due for a significant bump in the near future. NBA teams were recently advised that the league’s salary cap could rise past the $100MM mark as soon as the 2017/18 season. These estimates should make the hearts of NBA agents palpitate, and set the stage for some exciting future offseasons.
