As one NBA agent states, “What people don’t understand is that there are so many layers to any contract – let alone a maximum contract”. With any decision, it is imperative that the NBA player does his due diligence before making a decision that will impact their life forever. It is important to delve into the layers of a max contract and understand that not all max contracts are negotiated the same. For example, a player’s years of experience in the NBA is factored into how much of a percentage that a player can take of the team’s salary cap. A player with 0-6 years of experience can only make up 25 percent of the salary cap. A player with 7 to 9 years can take up 30 percent and a player with 10+ years can make up 35 percent of the salary cap. Additionally, there are “bird rights” which are salary cap exceptions that allow a player to earn more money and sign for a longer deal if the player chooses to stay with their current team.
