Report: 2011 NBA Salary Cap To Stay The Same As 2010

Tuesday November 1st, 2011

One resolved issue in a new NBA collective bargaining agreement is that the 2011 league salary cap will reportedly remain at its 2010 level, according to the New York Post.

Sources tell the paper that the salary cap should stay steady at $58 million but that that number is expected to grow in the following seasons by several million dollars. Representatives for the players and owners made great strides last week towards a new labor agreement that would end the lockout, however it has been widely reported that the remaining disagreement lies with the split of basketball related income. The owners reportedly want a 50-50 split of basketball related income; the players reportedly refuse to go lower than 52.5-47.5.
