Default Re: How good do you think we are next year?

Larry Coon, an NBA salary cap expert and contributor, said the exception Utah acquired via Okurís trade will initially count toward the teamís 2011-12 cap level. The Tribune reported last week the Jazz are expected to enter the season with a team payroll of about $64 million to $66 million, placing the franchise above the $58 million cap but below the $70 million luxury tax. The Jazz recently used part of their mid-level exception to sign Howard, adding depth at small forward.

Anyone know what this means? Initially? When doesn't it count? They have 4 to 6 mill before they pay tax? I'm sure we won't ever see them paying tax again under the new rules.
