Default Source: Owners Will Push For $45 Million Hard Cap Once Lockout Begins

Quote:
According to NBA executives familiar with the league’s strategies, once the lockout is in place, the owners will push for a hard salary cap of $45 million, the elimination of guaranteed contracts and ask that the players swallow a 33 percent salary cut.

The concessions made in recent weeks, including the “flex cap” of $62 million and a guarantee of $2 billion in annual player payroll, will be off the table.

If this seems certain to guarantee the loss of the entire 2011-12 season, it is because there are owners who think it is necessary for the long-term viability of the league.

The owners would be stupid to have a lockout for the whole season. There are so many great players in their primes right now and the NBA has great momentum right now only matched by the late 80-90s.

Once a few Big Name players start signing overseas this will wake the NBA up.

There are supposedly a lot of teams losing money. These owners should look in the mirror for the way they've been spending money on guys like Rashard Lewis but it's certainly not smart business to be operating at a loss. NBA is popular but popularity may not lead to profitability when your spending 70 mil (or whatever) ever year.

The problem is not the signing, but that teams are almost forced to sign for a huge amount. Just like the Bulls this offseason. You could say they were forced to sign Boozer because he was the only guy left. If that makes any sense.

Also, a lot of teams are losing big time money. The salaries to the players seems to be the big factor.

Yea but the amount they are paying players and the amount of money they are making in return doesn't justify it.

Good for the owners and a hard cap.

It's what needs to be done.

That or eliminating teams.

The NBA will follow in the NHL's model. Rumor has it the NHL deal was the Guinea pig for what stern and the nba wanted to see happen. The NHL owners locked out the players for the entire year and got everything they wanted (hard cap, rolled back contracts, etc.). I wouldnt be shocked if the NBA did the same thing.

What really hurt the NHL was the media coverage after the lockout and the fact there games were not an any real major network. I dont see this happening with the NBA.

The NBA owners can withstand a lockout much longer then most of the NBA players, best believe that. If the owners are truly committed to this lockout then the players are going to be in for a world of hurt.

Well yea ... it's billionaires v.s. millionaires (who usually spend money unwisely)

The billionaires are still making their income that keeps them billionaires.

The NBA millionaires can't play ball that was making them millions ... and forcing them into paying for lavish lifestyles that they really can't afford (most of them)

That's a denial of the reality of moral hazard. It's a part of the free market system, which I'm sure most NBA owners love. The tough part of the GM's job is figuring out how much to pay a player and for how long.
