Cash Sent, Received In NBA Trades For 2022/23

During each NBA league year, teams face limits on the amount of cash they can send out and receive in trades. Once they reach those limits, they’re no longer permitted to include cash in a deal until the following league year.

For the 2022/23 NBA season, the limit is $6,363,000. If a team is including cash in a deal, the minimum amount required is $110,000.

The limits on sending and receiving cash are separate and aren’t dependent on one another, so if a team sends out $6,363,000 in one trade, then receives $6,363,000 in another, they aren’t back to square one — they’ve reached both limits for the season and can’t make another deal that includes cash.

Adding cash to a deal can serve multiple purposes. It can be a sweetener to encourage a team to make a deal in the first place – like when a club acquires a second-round pick in exchange for cash, or sends out an unwanted contract along with cash – or it can be a necessity to meet CBA requirements.

For instance, when the Suns agreed to acquire Jock Landale from the Hawks this past summer, Atlanta essentially just wanted to clear a roster spot, but had to receive something in the deal. So Phoenix sent Atlanta $110K, the minimum amount that can change hands in any trade involving cash.

We’ll use the space below to track each team’s cash sent and received in trades for the 2022/23 season, updating the info as necessary leading up to the 2023 trade deadline and for the first part of the 2023 offseason next June. These totals will reset once the ’23/24 league year begins next July.
