Salary cap Rumors

The player who suffers the most by not being named a starter is Pelicans big man Anthony Davis, who needed a starting nod to trigger the Derrick Rose rule, which would have given Davis a salary of a projected $24.9MM instead of $20.4MM next season. The difference would amount to $25.875MM over the life of his contract, based on those same projections. He could still invoke the rule if he earns an All-NBA nod or wins the MVP award in the spring.
