As of the beginning of April, the 2024/25 salary cap has reflected no change from previous projections given last on January 30th 2024…

Quote:
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn

NBA has shared salary cap projections with teams for 2024-2025 season, sources tell ESPN. Projections are unchanged from January.
Salary Cap: $141 million
Minimum team salary: $127M
Tax Level: $172M
First Apron: $179M
Second Apron: $190M

https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1776273502594646339


…so it appears that these projections are based off a 3.68% increase to the salary cap from this season & won’t deviate much, if at all, when the offseason hits. Recall the max the salary cap can climb to is 10% annually, which would bring it to 149.6m.

However, till that becomes the case, the current 3.68% increase towards the cap will have the projections towards summer spending looking as such…

Quote:
Salary Cap: 141m

90% Cap Floor: 127m

Luxury Tax threshold: 172m

1st Apron: 179m

2nd Apron: 190m

Tax-Payer MLE: 5.18m for up to 2yrs
-using it triggers 2nd Apron, which effectively hardcaps a team at 190m
-no longer restricted towards just free agents & can be used to trade for players on existing contracts making up to 5.18m next year

Non Tax-Payer MLE: 12.86m for up to 4yrs
-using it triggers 1st Apron, which effectively hardcaps a team at 179m
-no longer restricted towards just free agents & can be used to trade for players on existing contracts making up to 12.86m next year

BiAnnual Exception: 4.67m for up to 2yrs
-using it triggers 1st Apron & can’t be used in consecutive seasons (ie Lakers won’t have access to this resource thus summer due to using BAE on Prince this past summer)
-no longer restricted towards just free agents & can be used to trade for players on existing contracts making up to 5.18m next year

roomMLE: 7.98m for up to 3 years
-no longer restricted towards just free agents & can be used to trade for players on existing contracts making up to 7.98m next year


2nd Round exception: 1.88m - 2.07m based respectively on either an up to 3 or 4 year deal with final year being team option

35% max (10+ seasoned player): 49.35m

30% max (7-9 seasoned player): 42.3m

25% max (0-6 seasoned player): 35.25m

Rookie min / incomplete roster charge: 1.88m

Vet min: 2.07m (only 2 seasoned player cap hit applies w/ difference paid by the league)
