Salary cap

On July 7, 2009, the NBA announced that the salary cap for the 2009–10 season would be $57.70 million and would go into effect on July 8 as the league's "moratorium period" had ended and teams could begin signing free agents and making trades. The tax level for the season was set at $69.92 million, with each team paying a $1 tax for each $1 by which it exceeds $69.92 million. The mid-level exception was $5.854 million for the season and the minimum team salary, which was set at 75% of the salary cap, was $43.275 million.[17]

For the 2008–09 season, the salary cap was set at $58.68 million ($0.98 million), while the tax level was $71.15 million ($1.23 million). Although the league-wide revenue increased by 2.5% in the previous season, the decrease in the salary cap and tax level was the result of the formula used to set the cap and tax under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement.[17]

Broadcast

The 2009–10 NBA season will be broadcast in the United States by ABC, ESPN, TNT and NBA TV. A number of games will be nationally televised by ABC, ESPN and TNT, while some games will be televised by NBA TV. Three teams, the Houston Rockets, New Jersey Nets and Charlotte Bobcats will not have any national TV appearances on ABC, ESPN and TNT. ABC will air several Sunday games and a double-header on Christmas day. ESPN will mainly televise the regular season games on Wednesdays and Fridays, while TNT will mainly televise the Thursday games. TNT will also broadcast the 2010 NBA All-Star Game and the NBA All-Star Saturday Night Events in February.[115][116][117]
