Source: Salary Cap to Exceed $100M in 2017-18

At this week’s NBA Board of Governors meetings in New York, teams were advised ‎that the league’s salary cap could rise past the $100 million mark as soon as the 2017-18 season, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN.com that based on current projections, league officials expect the salary cap to increase from its current $63.1 million figure to $67.1 million next season, $89 million in 2016-17 and $108 million in 2017-18. The jumps represent massive increases triggered largely by the influx of television money that will begin pouring in after the 2015-16 season, when the NBA’s new nine-year, $24 billion TV deal kicks in.
