Sources: NBA Teams Prepare For Possible Salary Cap Drop

At least five NBA teams are "having their salary cap personnel plan for a scenario" in which the cap for the '20-21 season could drop 10-15% "due to the current situation" between the league and China. The NBA last month released an "updated cap projection" of $116M for '20-21, about $7M higher than the figure of just over $109M for the current season. Scenario planning is a "normal but major part of the process for NBA front offices," but a 10-15% drop "would be quite a change" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 10/9).
