Post#1 Cap & Lux Tax Figures
Tue Jul 7, 2009 9:45 pm by Tommy Udo 6

The National Basketball Association today announced that the Salary Cap for the 2009-10 season will be $57.7 million. The tax level for the 2009-10 season has been set at $69.92 million. Any team whose team salary exceeds that figure will pay a $1 tax for each $1 by which it exceeds $69.92 million.

The 2008-09 Salary Cap was $58.68 million and the tax level was $71.15 million. Although league-wide revenue increased 2.5% this past season, the decrease in the Salary Cap and tax level for the 2009-10 season is the result of the formula used to set the Cap and tax under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement.

The new Salary Cap and tax level go into effect at 12:01 a.m. ET on Wednesday, July 8, when the league’s “moratorium period” ends and teams can begin signing free agents and making trades.

The mid-level exception is $5.854 million for the 2009-10 season and the minimum team salary, which is set at 75% of the Salary Cap, is $43.275 million.

Haven't been keeping the numbers in my head, so I'm going to ask: Where does this put the Bulls? I know there's a smartypants out there who has the answers.

Thanks Tommy that luxury tax number of 69.92 is a little higher than I thought it would be. Tell me if this is right, counting Gray and not counting Roberson and Nelson I have us for 12 players at roughly $67.5

Rose,Hinrich
Salmons
Deng,Johnson
Tyrus,Gibson,Tim
Noah,Miller,Gray,James

That leaves us $2 million to use the 13th spot on a solid backup PG/SG who can shoot the 3. In this economic climate that should get us a pretty solid player, no?

Roberson must be waived by Friday or he becomes guaranteed. If he stays, we'll have about $1.2 mil to use on a 14th player!

Has a reason been given as to why Aaron Gray is wasting 1million on the roster?

In other Aaron Gray news, I recently saw him in California.

Hate to state the obvious, but boozer has made Rose play worse not better.
And Noah, Gibson and Deng have all become worse players since boozer.
He doesn't fit this team well, we need to trade him away asap.

No - and I was not a fan of that qualifying offer. We could use that salary to pay someone who is actually good at playing basketball.

Never mind the players, Bulls M.V.P., the capologist guru who reports to Reinsdorque, I forgot his name. I think he was featured on Scott_May's avatar before Rushmore (this was on another forum). Missed it by that much...we're in the money! We're in the money!

Tommy with that being the case with Roberson shouldn't we just cut Roberson and use $2 million to get a really solid SG on a one year deal. Not sure who but Rodney Carney or Anthony Parker or someone along those lines would be great. I guess if we keep Roberson then you can get Pargo with the $1.2 million but with Pargo on board then Roberson is more useless than he is already. Contrary to others I am more than okay with Gray here for $1 million. The luxury tax number is higher than I expected so I feel good about that. He is a big strong 7 footer and as a 3rd string center is a nice player.

In his 37th season, Irwin Mandel has the longest tenure of anyone with the Bulls.

Mandel is the senior financial executive in the NBA, and one of the most experienced in any management position in the League ... responsible for the Club's financial, legal, and corporate areas ... most important duties include player contracts, financial reports, and applying and interpreting the NBA’s salary cap, free agency and other collective bargaining rules ... one of the select few NBA executives chosen to serve on the committee to advise the League regarding salary cap rule changes ... said Commissioner David Stern recently, “nobody in the NBA understands the intricacies of the salary cap better than Irwin Mandel” ... also considered one of the NBA’s most knowledgeable and creative experts on player contracts and the collective bargaining rules ... helped develop NBA team financial statements and assisted the NBA Labor Relations Committee ... oversaw the instituting of a detailed budget plan for the office and negotiated the Club’s switch to charter travel ... recently served as a consultant to two of the other major sports leagues regarding the benefits and workings of the NBA's salary cap and free agency systems ..(etc)

If Roberson stays, i doubt Pargo is coming......We'll know in 2 days. Roberson is on Summer League Squad. I doubt he'd be there if we're going to cut him. He's on minimum salary

Then if Roberson is here and we have $1.2 million left then I still say use that on a true SG with some size. I know McGraw has mentioned Gardner. Someone along those lines would be nice just for depth purposes. Roberson is a shooter and perhaps could bring a lot of what Pargo would. Pargo obviously is a better player though. My gut says cut Roberson, keep him on summer league and if you don't get Pargo then sign Roberson back. It is not like he would be in hot demand or anything.

Yes, we could do that - cut him & sign him back later..... I dont know what they are planning.
We could have not given a QO to Gray and still signed him also.

Yeah, because I dont see a lot of teams fighting to sign Gray or Roberson.
