    Default The Raptors and the Salary Cap/Luxury Tax

    Cap figures came out last night:








    Here is Raptors 2013-14 payroll via HoopsWorld.com:

    http://www.hoopsworld.com/toronto-raptors-team-salary

    Raptors guaranteed total: $65.324M

    Raptors options total: $70.535M

    BUT BUT BUT That does not include Hansbrough so tack on reported $3M.

    $68.32M and $74.535M.




    What does this mean for Toronto?

    #1 Raps are over the salary cap.

    #2 They are a luxury tax team.

    #3 The Raptors tax bill or final payroll is not determined until the final regular season game of 13-14.

    #4 Current Depth Chart
    PG: Lowry, Stone
    SG: DD, Ross, Fields, Richardson
    SF: Gay, Novak, Kleiza
    PF: Amir, Hansbrough, Acy
    C: JV, Gray, Camby

    #5 See this post: http://www.raptorsrepublic.com/forum...l=1#post220315

    #6 Raptors don't have to worry about spending the minimum 90% of soft cap ($52M).



    What is unknown:

    #1 Will Kleiza be amnestied?

    #3 Will Camby fork over some guaranteed money to secure his freedom and pursuit of a contender?


    EDIT: See phez's post:

    Not to beat a dead horse, but I would not call BC an efficient spender.

    Ryan Wolstat: Just got confirmation too that Hansbrough signed via part of MLE, not bi-annual Twitter @WolstatSun

    I think it is a given Kleiza is now amnestied. Just my opinion but here is why:

    Raptors are just $1.7M from hard cap.

    Serious implications with no proven backup PG.

    If injuries occur, 10 day contracts count against the hard cap.

    Raptors will not be able to take back very little to no money in trades.

    Interesting post. Just wanted to clear up some possible salary cap/CBA misconceptions:

    1. The Raptors don't have the mini-MLE. There are two types of mini-MLE, one for teams with cap space at the start of free agency who used up that cap space, and one for teams in the luxury tax at the start of free agency. Neither of those apply to the Raptors.

    2. The MLE is portionable however you want. You don't have to use it all, and you can split it up amongst as many different players as you like.

    3. I came out with slightly different numbers for the Raptors' current cap number than you did. I'll follow up a little bit later with the details.
