2012-13 Offseason Salary Cap Situation


With the Nets in the midst of the off-season, there has been a lot of talk about cap space and who we can or can't sign. I thought it would be helpful to put this picture up that clearly has the salaries or the salary cap holds for each of the players. I got the salary and the cap hold figures from shamsports.com (Gerald Wallace's salary info is on the trailblazers salary page). I also listed up to twelve players because "a roster charge applies during the offseason if a team has fewer than 12 players (including cap holds for free agents, first round draft picks and offer sheets)" (cbafaq.com) The salary for the #1 pick came from http://www.hoopsworld.com/2012-13-rookie-salary-scale . The salary cap is the minimum it could be for next season, but it could increase.

If the player's name and salary are in yellow, that means the amount is a cap hold and the team can renounce it for cap space. The benefit to not renouncing a player's cap hold, is to be able to go over the cap to sign them. For this reason, I did not include the cap hold figures for DeShawn Stevenson ($3,000,000), Damion James ($1,329,720), Shelden Williams, Sundiata Gaines or Armon Johnson ($854,389 each) since they would most likely be re-signed with the vet's minimum exception if they are to return. Since Bojan Bogdonavic was a second round pick, he has a minimum salary cap hold and we can go over the cap to sign him to any contract we'd like.

The cap space being in parenthesis means it's negative, i.e. that is the amount we are over the cap. The third set of salary figures are with Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace, and Jordan Farmar all picking up their player options for next year.
