A place to look at NBA salaries, the Collective Bargaining Agreement and other things related to basketball
AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT:
It is with sadness that I must announce that as of the conclusion of the 2013-14 NBA season, I will no longer be updating this website.
I’ve been keeping track of player salaries for 13 years now and have had a website displaying my spreadsheets for 10 of those years. But life does change and I simply no longer have the time for this hobby of mine. It will be strange not keeping track of every player transaction – but in some ways, giving up this website will give me a little more time to actually watch more NBA basketball and enjoy this amazing game.
Should someone desire to continue in my stead and take over, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk.
Thanks for all of the encouraging words that I’ve received over the years. I hope the information and the musings here have been helpful to you.
Blessings to all!

You can find comprehensive spreadsheets for player salaries and for team salaries – those that cover the entire league - by clicking on the buttons on the left. Or, if you prefer, you can look at a spreadsheet for a specific team by clicking on its city, listed to the right. Spreadsheets for previous seasons can be found in the Archive.
This site is not endorsed by the NBA, nor is it guaranteed to have completely correct figures. The salary numbers are simply my ‘best guesses’ based on my understanding of the Collective Bargaining Agreement and using information obtained in newspaper articles, on other web sites or wherever else I can find it.
I suggest that before you look at any of the spreadsheets, you read the page labeled ‘Notes’. It will help you to decipher the spreadsheets better.
Also, I’ve designed a chart that helps you determine if a proposed NBA transaction (trade or free agent signing) is legal under the rules of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. You can find this chart on the page labeled ‘Is A Transaction Legal?‘.
Feel free to email me with information about player contracts that you might have, or to let me know about any mistakes that you see on any of the spreadsheets. Any valid information forwarded to me will be used to update this site and make it as accurate as possible.
Unfortunately, I can’t update this site every day, although I do my best to post an update every week or two. Also, I’ll try to answer questions that you e-mail me, although I can’t promise to answer them all – this is just a hobby of mine and free time is rare!
