Next NBA CBA Could Have Enhanced Revenue Sharing Measures 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Oct 1, 2021 4:07 pm

Adam Silver has told New Orleans Pelicans president Dennis Lauscha that the next collective bargaining agreement will have "an enhanced revenue sharing model" to benefit small market teams.

“He’s very happy with what we’re doing in this market,” Lauscha said. “He’s actually bullish. He thinks a lot of things could land in our favor (in the new CBA). We’re going into this very optimistically.”

The Pelicans have been mentioned as a potential relocation target due to the gap in their revenues compared to other teams. The Pelicans have a high no-show rate for their games and they also bring in approximately $100 million per year less than their big market rivals in terms of local television broadcasting rights. 

Gayle Benson and team officials, however, say the Pelicans still make money.
