  • An early look towards 2021-22 salary cap situations

    Sure this is WAY too early but I'm a bit bored on a Saturday waiting to see who the Jazz get in round 2. So here is a quick look at the NBA rosters as they stand today regarding the 2021-22 season. There will be roster management (player and team options, waiving non-guaranteed contracts, trading and acquiring players) but this look is just to get a feel for the overall situation for all teams.

    Teams Over the 2021-22 Luxury Tax - $151,000,000
    Brooklyn Nets - $168,238,436 (9 players) - $121 million is tied up in Harden, Durant, and Irving
    Golden State Warriors - $165,501,582 (12 players) - $139 million is tied up in Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, and Green


    Teams Over the 2021-22 Salary Cap - $125,000,000
    Los Angeles Clippers - $148,825,448 (11 players)
    Milwaukee Bucks - $146,572,761 (12 players)
    Boston Celtics - $135,989,231 (12 players)
    Utah Jazz - $133,284,745 (11 players)
    Minnesota Timberwolves - $131,264,917 (12 players)
    Philadelphia 76ers - $129,159,871 (10 players)
    Denver Nuggets - $127,446,870 (12 players)
    Portland Trail Blazers - $127,138,355 (9 players)


    Teams Under the 2021-22 Salary Cap
    Phoenix Suns - $124,828,321 (9 players)
    Los Angeles Lakers - $121,905,517 (7 players)
    Washington Wizards - $121,826,985 (10 players)
    Indiana Pacers - $121,493,957 (12 players)
    Miami Heat - $112,272,515 (7 players)
    Detroit Pistons - $105,081,700 (12 players) – Includes $33.7 mill dead cap (Blake Griffin, Dewayne Dedmon, Zhaire Smith)
    Sacramento Kings - $103,055,350 (11 players)
    Toronto Raptors - $103,009,958 (11 players)
    Houston Rockets - $99,711,195 (10 players)
    Memphis Grizzlies - $99,586,048 (14 players)
    Chicago Bulls - $99,304,124 (9 players)
    Cleveland Cavaliers - $95,654,929 (13 players)
    Orlando Magic - $95,524,436 (11 players)
    New Orleans Pelicans - $94,454,132 (11 players)
    Atlanta Hawks - $93,496,087 (10 players)
    Dallas Mavericks - $90,873,002 (11 players)
    Charlotte Hornets - $83,125,939 (10 players)
    San Antonio Spurs - $59,690,017 (10 players)
    Oklahoma City Thunder - $56,179,052 (12 players)
    New York Knicks - $55,786,944 (8 players)



    The Knicks, Thunder, and Spurs are the teams that have the most salary cap room available with $65 mill+ before hitting the salary cap. Maybe the Warriors will be calling to see if they are willing to take Wiggins (2 years, $65 mill) off their hands to better their luxury tax situation?

    Except for Conley and Jingles, the Jazz players are pretty well locked up.
    Those guys will be 34 year old players... not the sort of guys that would be in line for long term deals anyway.
    I doubt Jingles would leave anyway.
    DUTY NOW FOR THE FUTURE!!
