NBA CBA Spreadsheet Guide

Ever curious how NBA teams are able to assemble their rosters while dealing with complex salary cap restrictions, exceptions, and more? Thanks to Larry Coon’s CBA FAQ, learning about and understanding the CBA has never been easier. For any particular question you may have, Larry’s site has a concise yet comprehensive explanation – from how players and owners divide revenue streams, to all of the contract and trade limits imposed on players and teams.

Taking it a step further, I wanted to see how the rules may be applied in action. While working at an agency last summer, I created spreadsheet models to quickly calculate the kinds of contracts available to free agents and the restraints placed on teams based on their roster constructions. Now, anyone can access and download the spreadsheet at the link below.
