A place to look at NBA salaries, the Collective Bargaining Agreement and other things related to basketball
The salary spreadsheets have been updated to 2012-13 numbers. Unfortunately, the drop-down menus on each sheet need to be updated, so they might not get you to the right sheet. I’ll try to fix them as soon as I can.
You can find comprehensive spreadsheets for player salaries and for team salaries – those that cover the entire league - by clicking on the buttons on the left. Or, if you prefer, you can look at a spreadsheet for a specific team by clicking on its city, listed to the right. Spreadsheets for previous seasons can be found in the Archive.
This site is not endorsed by the NBA, nor is it guaranteed to have completely correct figures. The salary numbers are simply my ‘best guesses’ based on my understanding of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and using information obtained in newspaper articles, on other web sites or wherever else I can find it.
I suggest that before you look at any of the spreadsheets, you read the page labeled ‘Notes’. It will help you to decipher the spreadsheets better.
Also, I’ve designed a chart that helps you determine if a proposed NBA transaction (trade or free agent signing) is legal under the rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. You can find this chart on the page labeled ‘Is A Transaction Legal?‘.
Feel free to email me with information about player contracts that you might have, or to let me know about any mistakes that you see on any of the spreadsheets. Any valid information forwarded to me will be used to update this site and make it as accurate as possible.
Unfortunately, I can’t update this site every day, although I do my best to post an update every week or two. Also, I’ll try to answer questions that you e-mail me, although I can’t promise to answer them all – this is just a hobby of mine and free time is rare!
