CELTICS WOULD GET CAP RELIEF UNDER PROPOSED CBA
Published September 6, 1995
The Celtics are hoping the proposed CBA is ratified because under the terms of the new agreement, the team would be able to deduct Reggie Lewis' salary from the salary cap, according to the BOSTON GLOBE. Under the old agreement, there are no provisions that cover a player's death. NBA officials note that under the new agreement, if a player dies or suffers a career-ending injury, his team will continue to pay him or his estate for the length of his contract, but after two years, the salary will not count against the cap (Jackie MacMullan, BOSTON GLOBE, 9/6).
