  • • Devin Booker's extension could pay him up to 30% of the cap
    The Suns used a portion of their room exception to sign De’Anthony Melton to his first NBA contract, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks (Twitter link). Without using that exception, Phoenix would only have been able to offer Melton a first-year salary of $838K. Instead, the Suns were able to bump that figure to $949K. They still have $3.5M of their ro...

  • • NBA's top 50 highest-paid players for 2018-19
    While many of the NBA’s highest-paid players are on contracts considered maximum-salary deals, the 2018/19 salaries for those players vary significantly depending on when the player signed his contract and how much NBA experience he has. That’s why a player like Stephen Curry can earn $17M+ more than Kyrie Irving in ’18-19 despite both star point g...

  • • Jimmy Butler would consider Lakers in free agency
    Jimmy Butler is ‘open to the idea’ of leaving the Timberwolves to join LeBron James and the Lakers, a source close to Butler told Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report.While that’s not as definitive as Kawhi Leonard‘s well-known desire to play in Los Angeles — though the Raptors are already taking measures to change his mind — it’s certainly another intri...

  • • Details of Clint Capela's new contract revealed

  • • Hawks GM faces questions about why he added Jeremy Lin
    The Hawks traded for Jeremy Lin last week in a deal that cleared a path for the Nets to create the cap room necessary to take on a pair of unwanted contracts – and a pair of draft picks – in a trade of their own with the Nuggets.According to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link), based on the conversations he had in Las Vegas, there was...
  • • J.J. Redick's Sixers deal allows him to block trades for the coming season
    J.J. Redick‘s new deal with the Sixers gives him plenty of protection in the unlikely event that Philadelphia wants to trade him. Because he re-signed on a one-year deal and will have Early Bird rights at the end of it, he receives the ability to block any trade involving him during the 2018/19 league year, since he’d lose those Early Bird rights i...
  • • Jokic's new deal not technically a max-salary contract
    While Nikola Jokic‘s new five-year deal with the Nuggets was reported as a maximum-salary contract, that’s not technically accurate.

    The Rockets‘ four-year max deal for Chris Paul includes a player option in year four, according to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link).

Paul will be 36 years old when he h...
