*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 Houston to create max space they would have 6 players under contract, therefor would be charged the rookie minimum 831,311 6 times.

**This team salary number includes all guaranteed salaries, Paul, Ariza and Capela’s cap hold, and projected draft pick salary. I project this as likely.

***For max space Houston would have to renounce all holds and non-guaranteed contracts. Very unlikely.
