NBA expected to artificially keep cap at $109M instead of true figure of $90M

Figure for next season would be inflated.

The NBA and NBPA are negotiating methods of artificially inflating the 20-21 salary cap to keep it around $109 million, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Zach Lowe.

If the NBA and players were to link the salary cap to overall league revenue, it would have fallen to around $90 million. Those discussions are at the core of what needs to be decided to finalize a revised collective bargaining agreement. Both sides must also agree to an escrow system to account for the anticipated shortfall.
