A few weeks ago, I wrote about the impact of the new TV money on the NBA salary cap. The cash will keep rolling in, turning into a tidal wave of dollars for the players. The salary cap is $63 million for this season. NBA people have shown me the following projections: 2016-17: $89 million cap. 2017-18: $108 million. 2018-19: $120 million. So in four years, the salary cap may double. It’s expected to rise about 30 percent in 2016, what I’ve called “The Money Summer.” That’s why Mozgov won’t sign an extension right now. He’ll play for $4.9 million and another solid season for the 7-footer could be worth more than $15 million a year in 2016. As a few agents have explained to me, “A max contract now immediately becomes 30 percent less than the max by next summer. In 2-3 years, it’s not anywhere close to the max.”
