NBA teams being told PROJECTED luxury-tax threshold for next season:$71.6 million. Reminder: Projections not binding until full July audit
@ESPNSteinLine tweet — league’s projected cap/tax for 2013-14 is currently $58.5M & $71.6M. For 2014-15 it’s $62.1M & $75.7M.
The salary cap increase for the 2013-14 season will be relatively minimal, only jumping around $500K from the 2012-13 cap of $58,044,000. The tax threshold though will have a bit of a bigger increase as it was at $70,307,000 for 2012-13, increasing over a million for the 2013-14 season, something teams like the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks will be happy with.
The larger jump will take place for the 2014-15 season as the salary cap will jump nearly four million dollars from the current 2012-13 season number with a near six million dollar jump on the tax threshold.
