    That "average salary" is not the one defined in the CBA. It is heavily skewed by large numbers of 14th and 15th men at the minimum. Per the CBA the average salary is defined as 1/13.2 of the average total salary for a team (which is total salaries / 30).

    The current projection of the average salary for this season is 5.739M.

    I'd be curious to know what the average new salary is each year, and how that will trend going forward. To me that's the meaningful number. (Take Ross, for example; his extension will be more than the average NBA player makes next year. But it might also be less than the average salary signed next offseason (or it might not)).
    That's a good question actually, not sure how to get that number though without taking the 1st year of every deal signed by every free agent and averaging them though lol.

    Did not look to debunk - the point is a valid one, it was only the specifics that were off. It is true we need to re-adjust our average salary expectations from mid-5M or so to mid-8M, and it is a good topic to broach.
    Oh I'm not saying you were, I'm happy you raised those points, like I said I kind of just looked at past averages and extrapolated but you can't really do that so it makes sense what you wrote.

    Probably should change the thread to "the average salary is going to be a lot more than it has been in the past". I think my main point was that a guy like Ross didn't really get a big contract, it would've been like paying him 6M or so per year in the late '00s early '10s. And someone like CoJo basically got robbed blind by Masai lol.

    Welp thread debunked, good points DanH.

    Although I will say idk if using Kobe's money as a reference point means much though, since LeBron will likely have the same kind of distance between the other highest paid guys.

    Nonetheless I didn't really put enough research into that as I should've.

    I'm sure the 2017 CBA negotiations will be correcting things like the minimum and MLE salaries with the rising cap, possibly rookie scale salaries too. Possibly tying them to the cap, possibly just increasing the values.

    That said, at the moment the MLE values are fixed and will not be rising with the cap barring a renegotiation of the CBA.

    Interesting thread and some good discussion. Although not statistically accurate, I tend to consider the MLE to be the 'average' salary for 'average' players. Rookies, vets and bench filler make less than MLE, while good players make more. It may not have the support of such things as math, facts or truth, but it's usually a pretty good benchmark for player/salary discussions.

    * based on the assumption that the MLE will rise in accordance with the new cap, which is what I thought I remember reading

    The way exceptions are set will need to be changed. If the avg salary is double the MLE, teams can't live over the cap. Only scrubs will be at MLE

    It's interesting because as recently as like 2010 the average player salary would've been around $5M with top players making upwards of $10M and the mid-max being in the mid teens. Now we're going to see an average of $10M with top players making upwards of $20M and the mid-max being in the high 20s. It's really a significant financial change that's coming to the NBA.
    In 2010, Kobe Bryant made 25M. The other top ten salaries were in the 17-20M range.

    In 2009, Kobe made 23M. The other top ten salaries were in the 17-23M range, with 4 other players above 20M.

    It's a huge increase, but not quite the increase that paragraph paints it as.

    The average salary has been trending closer to 8-9% over the past half decade, with an average since 2011-12 of 8.8%.

    8.8% means, over the next few summers, an average salary of:
    2016: 7.8M
    2017: 9.5M
    2018: 8.8M
    2019: 8.9M
    2020: 9.4M

    For an average over that span of 8.9M.

    And that's based on the same proportion. The average salary will most certainly NOT maintain the same proportion, as salaries simply cannot keep up with the rising cap. The average salary in the next two seasons will be much lower than those projections, as teams will struggle to be over the cap. Usually there's a 12% overrun on the cap on average but that could disappear or even get into the negatives. But if we assume it goes to a 0% overrun for the first 2 years, that drops the average salary to 7M and 8.5M in those two years. Meaning an average-average-salary over the next 5 years of 8.5M.

    I think 10M is misrepresenting it a little. Though the context adjustment is worth making, 8.5M is still far higher than the past half decade of about 5.5M.
