In what may be a best-case scenario, the 2016-17 salary cap ceiling could go as high as $74.5 million for the 2016-17 season.
(This season’s mark is $71.4M, so that’s about a $3.1 million increase … potentially.)
That’s the number stemming from Monday’s Board of Governors meetings, via various reporters including ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun.
Keep in mind that the final number could change quite a bit.
Assuming that ends up being the ceiling, which teams should be the happiest and which ones may be scrambling for funds?
Note: While the cap was discussed, expansion came up, though it sounds like it was very preliminary.
