          • Any update on where we are cap wise? I heard we are pretty close to the tax.

              This piece breaks down the current situation, though it is slightly out of date with some new salary numbers reported for Trent Jr making the rounds now.

              https://www.raptorshq.com/2021/8/7/2...ary-cap-update

              The update would be:

              13 NBA deals
              2 two-way deals
              133.7M against the cap (21.3M over)
              134.9M against the tax (1.75M under)

              That includes Trent's bonuses. Assumes Yuta and Wainwright make the team (their heavy guarantees suggest they will).

              A minimum deal for a non-draftee is 1.67M, so they no longer need to sign Banton as the 14th guy to fit everything.

              If they sign a non-draftee minimum they will be 78k short of the tax. If they sign Banton they will be ~800k short of the tax. Both with 14 guys, neither with room for a 15th guy.

              • Trent's deal starts at 16M even now (17.28M, 18.56M following years), plus 250k in bonuses every year.
