Top 5 NBA teams with Salary cap room for NBA free agents.

December 29, 2018

This coming NBA free agency threatens to be as exciting as the year of the Lebron James Decision. Tipoff top five teams and their chances of making big NBA free agent signings! !

  • Los Angeles Lakers
  • Los Angeles Clippers
  • Sacramento Kings
  • New York Knicks
  • Dallas Mavericks

The teams in order of salaries committed for the season 2019/2020 are as follows.

  1. Brooklyn $40,332,631
  2. Sacramento $46,373,959
  3. LA Clippers $47,347,510
  4. Atlanta $48,655,968
  5. Dallas $51,769,283
  6. Chicago $53,811,026
  7. New York $57,344,983
  8. Indiana $58,580,379
  9. LA Lakers $67,230,167
  10. Philadelphia $71,709,606

The NO1 team on salary, coach, talent and owner are the Dallas Mavericks. Luka Doncic has led this team into playoff contention and Deandre Jordan still is a force in the Middle. Dallas has the ability to sign anybody. They are in a position to sign 3 max level players without offering max level contracts; Texas is a tax-friendly state as well. Half of the games played by the Dallas Mavericks will not have state income tax. While that is only a potential boost of around 7 percent. That is potentially 2 million+ per max contract that players might give back to the team.

The number 2 team is the Sacramento Kings. They have the money and the team. The important players DeAaron Fox and Buddy Hield are under contract, except for their defensive anchor Willie Cauley-Stein. Willie only needs a qualifying offer of $6,265,631. The Kings are in a fabulous position to sign any free agent player.

Los Angeles Clippers only have a confirmed payroll of $47,347,510, that is 20 million more than the Lakers. Their current roster is experienced and hungry. There is a lot of money floating around and players like Tobias Harris will be max level nba player this offseason.

Los Angeles Lakers are fourth with Lebron James and a roster that is still figuring itself out.

The New York Knicks have the coach, but the jury must be out on the players. Kristaps Porzingis is still to come back from injury, and the owner is despised throughout the league.
