Mavericks Contracts and future salary commitments

Disclaimer: The league does not officially release salary information. The following is based on newspaper reports, basic computation of known variables (ie, the scale for rookie contracts since 98-99 is known, set maximum salary increases allowed for contracts since 98-99, if a player's salary consistently increased by a certain amount then future salaries may have been computed based on that amount, ...), and other things and the listing is not necessarily accurate. The sum of a player's contract breakdown may not actually match the listed contract signing amount due to a variety of reasons - the reported contract signing amount may not be accurate or may have been rounded and/or a individual season salary listing may not be accurate or may have been rounded.

For more information about the salary cap, take a look at the NBA Salary Cap/Collective Bargaining Agreement FAQ located at http://www.cbafaq.com/
