Default When will an NBA player get a $200 million contract?

Do you see it happening soon?

If so, who do you see getting such a contract?

If anyone did it it would obviously be Lebron James in the possible New York future.

Theres a reason people get MAX contracts because that is the Maximum allowed by the CBA.

So until the CBA is changed, no one.

Agreed. I don't know why a team would ever spend that much money when they could get a bunch of pretty good players with it and win a championship.

I'm pretty sure 7 years is the maximum contract length allowed by the CBA.

6 Years.

I think the current CBA expires in 2 years and I wouldn't be surprised if it changed to allow the big contracts once again for NBA players which would increase the salary caps allowing for teams to sign more talent and overpay for mediocre talent.

I think it would be more likely to go down again instead of going back up. There has been a little more flexibility with the current CBA than the old one, which was ridiculous enough that you STILL have guys like Raef LaFrentz with ginormous contracts dragging down teams.

How could the CBA have prevented Lafrenz's contract? He'll make 12.7 million next year, and the contract was inked by Cuban...

There were 7 year contracts at the time, there aren't now.

I doubt the players union would let it go down,I think the only way it would go up though would be if players sacrificed part of the 100% gurantee on their contracts to maybe a 65% gurantee allowing in certain situations for a Free Agent bust to be released and not cost the team as much as it does now.

If buyouts didn't count against luxury tax, we might see it increase.
