*Dallas will only have room exception available if Dallas chooses to renounce rights to MLE and Bi-Annual to create cap space. Remember, the MLE and Bi-Annual count towards your team salary if below the salary cap. Most teams renounce these to create room, which then the room exception becomes available.

*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 example, for Dallas to create max space they would have 7 players under contract. Therefor would be charge the rookie minimum 831,311 5 times.

***This team salary number is without Noel’s, McDermott, Mejri, Finney-Smith, Kelber, Collinsworth, Harrison, Motley, Jones’s cap holds and non-guaranteed contracts. I don’t necessarily project this as likely, but wanted to give you an idea what it would take to open up max space for a 0-5 year player like Julius Randle or Zach Lavine. The cap flexibility is there

****For Dallas to create “max space”, they would have to waive all non-guaranteed contracts, renounce all cap holds. . Dallas would also have to draft players that would stay overseas, or just trade away picks. I project this as unlikely, but the point is to see the flexibility Dallas has.
