Default Cap Could Drop To $50.4M In 2010-11

In addition to the announcement of the 2009-10 salary cap, NBA teams received tentative projections from the league office warning that the cap is estimated to drop to somewhere between $50.4 million and $53.6 million for the 2010-11 season.

The official league memorandum, obtained by, forecasts a dip in basketball-related income in the 2009-10 season of 2.5 percent to 5 percent, which threatens to take the 2010-11 cap down some $5 million to $8 million from last season's $58.7 million salary cap.

Obviously this would be good news for the Raptors bid to re-sign Bosh but bad news for their ability to add pieces and stay below luxury tax.

Looks like BC might stock up on the cheap picks now.
