*Under the CBA, teams must have a minimum payroll that is at least 90% of the salary cap. The current cap for 2015-2016 is $70.0M – meaning a minimum payroll of $63,000,000.  If the team doesn’t meet the minimum payroll, then the difference between the minimum cap line and actual line is spread out among the current roster. The Tax Line is at $84.7M.

 

Player and Team Notes:

Magic have a Traded Player Exception as a result of dealing Channing Frye to Cleveland. It’s valued at $8,193,029 (Frye’s ’15-’16 contract) and expires on 2/18/2017. $1.15 million of that TPE was used to acquire Chris Copeland. The TPE is now valued at $7,043,029. Although the Magic have $63,515,581 in player salary now, this TPE counts against the team’s salary cap, so in reality it puts the Magic at $70,558,610. That’s $558,610 over the salary cap.

The Magic can choose to renounce the rights to this TPE at any time if they choose to dip under the salary cap before July 1st. Or, use it as a trade piece.

Ersan Ilyasova – Only $400,000 of $8.4 million of 2016-2017 contract is guaranteed. Becomes guaranteed on July 1, 2016.

Joe Harris – Contract was waived following the January 12, 2016 trade with the Cavaliers.

Melvin Ejim ($150,000), Jordan Sibert ($100,000), Keith Appling ($100,000) – All waived in preseason, partially guaranteed contracts according to Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders.

Devyn Marble – Estimated salary based on report of 3-year deal. Guaranteed for 2015-2016 season. ’16-’17 portion of contract becomes guaranteed on July 15, 2016.

C.J. Watson – Assuming 3-year, $15 million deal is a flat payout. For 2017-2018 season, only $1 million of the $5 million is guaranteed. ’17-’18 portion of deal gets fully guaranteed on July 10, 2017.

Free Agency Moratorium – July 1, 2016 through July 6, 2016. Teams can officially sign free agents beginning July 7th.

2016 – Owed better second-rounder from either Chicago Bulls or Portland Trail Blazers. Orlando will pick 47th on June 23rd.

2017 – Owed second-rounder (top-55 protected) from Sacramento Kings as a result of the Joe Harris trade with Cleveland.
