*IRC stands for “incomplete roster charge”. This happens when teams fall below 12 players under contract. For every spot under 12, a team is charged the rookie minimum. For Cleveland, to create max space Cleveland would have 9 players under contract. Therefor would be charged rookie minimum, 831,311, 3 times.

**This team salary number is without Calderon, Green, White, Perkins, Holland, and Perrantes’ cap holds. I project this as likely.
