Week In Review 7/5/15-7/11/15

The NBA announced that the salary cap for 2015/16 will be $70MM, an 11% increase from this past season, and the luxury tax line will be $84.74MM. The last cap projection from the league had been set at $67.1MM, and the projection for the tax had been $81.6MM. These figures mean the maximum salaries for this coming season are also going to be higher than estimated, so LaMarcus Aldridge, Marc Gasol, Kawhi Leonard and others who’ve agreed to max contracts this month will earn more cash than they thought.

The league also tabulated final payrolls for each team from last season, revealing that players collectively made less than the 50.39% of basketball-related income that the collective bargaining agreement holds that they’re entitled to. Thus, the league will pay out the $57,298,826 shortfall to the union, which will distribute that amongst the players.

Here’s the rest of the happenings from the week that was…


  • The Lakers acquired Roy Hibbert from the Pacers in exchange for a future second-rounder.
  • The Knicks acquired Kyle O’Quinn via a sign-and-trade deal with the Magic. Orlando will receive cash considerations as well as the rights to swap a second-round draft pick in 2019 in return.
  • The Kings dealt Ray McCallum to San Antonio for a future second-round pick.
  • The Mavericks acquired Zaza Pachulia from the Bucks for a future second round pick.
