Expiring contracts used to have some value because it could allow a team a means of exceeding the cap. With the super luxury tax coming in next year, big salary teams will be forced to cut salaries to get uunder the cap. Here's a quick guess on the cap and the tax level.
Will there be a fire sale on 20 million dollar players that are too expensive with super luxury tax coming in.... at the upcoming trade deadline. I would have to assume there will be more sellers than buyers.
This is interesting...and can you possibly even take a chance that the cap goes that high if you're a GM?
