Offseason Salary Cap Digest

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Golden State Warriors

After blowing a 3-1 series lead in last year’s Finals, the Warriors were the punchline in a bevy of offseason jokes. They responded by adding Kevin Durant to a 73-win roster, racking up 67 more regular season wins, and opening the playoffs on a 15-0 run. Golden State’s current roster looks virtually unstoppable, and while the team may not re-sign all its complementary players this summer, it should have no problem locking up Durant and Stephen Curry to new deals.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Warriors financially, as we conclude our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

  • None

Restricted Free Agents

Cap Holds

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $39,485,506

  • Our max cap room scenario for the Warriors assumes that Durant turns down his player option and the Warriors renounce all their free agents except for Curry. Five guaranteed salaries, along with cap holds for Curry and six empty roster rosters, would bring team salary to $61,514,494. In that scenario, the team could afford a max contract for Durant, but wouldn’t have much cap room left to sign other players. The more likely outcome – which would give the team a better chance to re-sign Iguodala and Livingston – involves staying over the cap and Durant accepting a 20% raise rather than a true max salary.

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Cleveland Cavaliers

After the NBA salary cap jumped to unprecedented heights in 2016, it became more challenging for teams to spend enough to surpass the tax line, but the Cavaliers did it with ease. By our count, they’ll have a tax bill of nearly $25MM for the 2016/17 season, and they’re projected to be in tax territory again in ’17/18. That will make it difficult to make major upgrades to the roster, though GM David Griffin has been creative in adding pieces in the past.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Cavaliers financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

  • None

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

  • Edy Tavares ($1,471,382)
  • Kay Felder ($856,082) — Partial guarantee. Guaranteed portion noted above.1
  • Total: $2,327,464

Restricted Free Agents

  • None

Cap Holds

Trade Exceptions

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $27,933,665

  • The Cavaliers’ eight guaranteed contracts, plus four cap charges for empty roster spots, bring the total team salary to $128,933,665. Considering the luxury tax line is currently projected to be around $121MM, the Cavs have virtually no way to get below the cap this summer unless they gut their roster.

Footnotes:

  1. Felder’s salary won’t become fully guaranteed until January 10.

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs won 60+ games for the third time in four years in 2016/17, but any chance they had of knocking off the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals was stymied when Kawhi Leonard re-injured his ankle in Game 1 against Golden State. Even though San Antonio was the second- or third-best team in the NBA this past season, additional roster pieces may be needed to seriously challenge the historically dominant Warriors.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Spurs financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

Restricted Free Agents

  • Jonathon Simmons ($1,671,382 qualifying offer / $1,671,382 cap hold)
  • Total: $1,671,382

Cap Holds

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $22,856,803

  • With seven guaranteed contracts, plus cap holds for a first-round pick and four empty roster spots, the Spurs’ team salary is $78,143,197. That figure doesn’t include Gasol or Lee, who could pick up player options, and also doesn’t include Ginobili, Mills, or Simmons, all free agents. Even if none of those players return, San Antonio would still have work to do to clear enough room for a maximum salary player like Chris Paul.

Footnotes:

  1. Forbes’ salary becomes partially guaranteed ($100,000) after August 1.

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Boston Celtics

As was the case for all the Eastern teams that looked to knock off the Cavs in the postseason, the Celtics’ year ended on a demoralizing note, but it was a positive season for the franchise on the whole. Landing a No. 1 seed and a No. 1 pick in the same year is virtually unheard of, and will allow Boston to add another core piece to an already talented roster. The team also still has more draft picks and players stashed away, and has the flexibility to add another piece or two in free agency.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Celtics financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

  • None

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

  • Tyler Zeller ($8,000,000)2
  • Jordan Mickey ($1,471,382)3
  • Demetrius Jackson ($734,750) — Partial guarantee. Guaranteed portion noted above.1
  • Total: $10,206,132

Restricted Free Agents

  • Kelly Olynyk ($4,187,598 qualifying offer / $7,735,033 cap hold)
  • Total: $7,735,033

Cap Holds

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $26,796,789

  • The Celtics lucked out when they landed the No. 1 pick, but the cap hold for that selection adds $7MM+ to their team salary, reducing their flexibility a little. For our max cap room calculation, we assumed the C’s will keep their seven guaranteed contracts plus Jackson (whose non-guaranteed portion is cheaper than an empty roster slot), and accounted for cap holds for the No. 1 pick, Yabusele, Zizic, and an empty roster spot. That works out to $74,203,211, which doesn’t leave enough room for a max salary for someone like Gordon Hayward. However, Boston could create more cap space by stashing Yabusele and/or Zizic for another year, or by making a trade.

Footnotes:

  1. Jackson’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after July 15.
  2. Zeller’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after July 2.
  3. Mickey’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after either July 1 or July 15 (conflicting information available).

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Miami Heat

The Heat started the 2016/17 season with a 7-12 record, then had a pair of wild swings, losing 18 of their next 22 games before winning 30 of their final 41. There’s reason to believe that Miami’s strong second half is a positive sign of things to come, but a few of the club’s key players from that run are now eligible for free agency. That will create some uncertainty going forward, but with Chris Bosh‘s $25MM+ salary no longer on their books, the Heat will have a little more room to maneuver this offseason.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Heat financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

  • None

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

Restricted Free Agents

  • None

Cap Holds

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $38,232,519

  • Taking into account their five guaranteed contracts, plus cap holds for a first-round pick and six empty roster spots, the Heat have a team salary of $62,767,481. However, that would mean waiving all their non-guaranteed players, including Richardson and McGruder, which is very unlikely — still, since those players are on veteran minimum salaries, they won’t cut into Miami’s cap room in a major way.

Footnotes:

  1. Ellington’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after July 6.
  2. Richardson’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after June 30.
  3. McGruder’s salary becomes partially guaranteed ($452,625) after August 1.
  4. White’s salary becomes partially guaranteed ($226,312) after July 1. Partial guarantee increases to $452,624 after August 1.

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets missed the postseason for a fourth straight season this year, but they took steps in the right direction and unearthed a franchise-type center in Nikola Jokic. Set to earn the minimum salary in 2017/18, Jokic will be perhaps the NBA’s best bargain. He won’t be this inexpensive forever, but while he is, Denver has a great opportunity to attempt to take advantage of the flexibility by adding talent around him.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Nuggets financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

  • None

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

Restricted Free Agents

  • Mason Plumlee ($4,588,840 qualifying offer / $5,821,325 cap hold)
  • Total: $5,821,325

Cap Holds

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $43,170,506

  • With 11 guaranteed salaries on their books and a cap hold for their first-round pick, the Nuggets have a modest team salary of $57,829,494. If the club intends to make a serious effort to re-sign Gallinari, that figure will grow, reducing cap flexibility. But if Gallinari departs and Denver makes a trade or two, the team could create even more cap room.

Footnotes:

  1. Miller’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after July 12.

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Detroit Pistons

Poised to continue building on a 2015/16 season that saw them record 44 wins and land their first playoff berth in seven years, the Pistons instead regressed, falling out of the postseason picture with a 37-45 record. Reggie Jackson was plagued by injuries and was ineffective for much of the season, while Andre Drummond‘s free throw woes continued to make him a liability in late-game situations. Now, the Pistons are virtually capped-out and will have to figure out how to improve a roster that could use reinforcements in several different areas.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Pistons financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

  • Darrun Hilliard ($1,471,382)2
  • Michael Gbinije ($812,611) — Partial guarantee. Guaranteed portion noted above.1
  • Total: $2,283,993

Restricted Free Agents

Cap Holds

  • Aron Baynes ($8,450,000) — If player option is declined
  • No. 12 overall pick ($2,759,280)
  • Beno Udrih ($1,471,382)
  • Total: $12,680,662

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $1,626,336

  • Taking into account their nine guaranteed salaries and cap charges for a first-round pick and two empty roster spots, the Pistons have a team salary of $99,373,664. That would involve renouncing Caldwell-Pope, Baynes, and Bullock, and still doesn’t create any real cap room, making it an unlikely scenario. So unless they make a cost-cutting trade or two, the Pistons will be an over-the-cap team this offseason.

Footnotes:

  1. Gbinije’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after July 15.
  2. Hilliard’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after July 1.

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: Charlotte Hornets

After a solid 2015/16 season, the Hornets took a step back in ’16/17, with their win total dipping from 48 to 36. As Charlotte looks to bounce back, the fact that Kemba Walker is the sixth-highest-paid player on the roster is both good and bad news for the club — Walker is on a very team-friendly contract, but the Hornets have made some other questionable big-money investments that will limit their flexibility.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Hornets financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

  • None

Team Options

Non-Guaranteed Salary

Restricted Free Agents

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $5,677,173

  • The Hornets’ guaranteed salaries, plus cap holds for their first-round pick and two empty roster spots, total $106,677,173, putting the team over the cap. So, barring a significant change in direction, Charlotte is unlikely to dip below the cap this summer.

Footnotes:

  1. O’Bryant’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after August 1.
  2. Weber’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after August 1.

2017 Offseason Salary Cap Digest: New Orleans Pelicans

The Pelicans entered the 2016/17 season with playoff aspirations, but quickly fell out of the race and couldn’t climb back in, even after their deadline acquisition of DeMarcus Cousins. The frontcourt pairing of Cousins and Anthony Davis is a very intriguing one, particularly with a full offseason ahead for the two star bigs to get comfortable with one another. Still, the duo will need some help and New Orleans doesn’t have a ton of cap flexibility to continue adding complementary pieces.

Here’s where things currently stand for the Pelicans financially, as we continue our Offseason Salary Cap Digest series for 2017:

Guaranteed Salary

Player Options

  • None

Team Options

  • None

Non-Guaranteed Salary

Restricted Free Agents

  • None

Cap Holds

Trade Exceptions

Projected Salary Cap: $101,000,000

Maximum Cap Room: $13,308,395

  • Adding three cap charges for empty roster spots to New Orleans’ nine guaranteed contracts results in a total team salary of $87,691,605. The cap space created in that scenario is minimal, so the Pelicans are more likely to retain one or two of their players on non-guaranteed contracts and to keep Holiday’s cap hold on the books as they attempt to re-sign him. That would mean staying over the cap.

Footnotes:

  1. Crawford’s salary becomes fully guaranteed after August 1.
  2. Cook’s salary becomes partially guaranteed ($25,000) after July 5. Guarantee increases to $100,000 after July 25.
