Salary cap Rumors

Bobby Marks: With the Dwight Howard trade, only Allen Crabbe will have a guaranteed contract for the Nets in 2019-20. The Nets could potentially have up to $60M+ in room next summer but will be contingent on the restricted free agency of D’Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
According to two people with knowledge of the Rockets’ thinking, the team’s general manager Daryl Morey is intent on moving Anderson in a trade. One person said the Rockets could pursue buyout options if no such agreement is met. Both people requested anonymity because they are unauthorized to speak on the record of Anderson’s situation. The players’ union had decided it didn’t want to smooth the salary cap jump over several years, and instead wanted most of the money at once. This obviously benefited those who would enter free agency in 2016, as there were a number of notable names. To the front offices, however, this was a mistake, and once the cap stopped rising, a lot of teams were left with undesirable, albatross contracts for middle-of-the-park level talent.
