    2006 NBA Teams Under Cap

    2006 NBA Teams Under Cap


    Check out ESPN.com's complete list of 2006 free agents

    Free agents can negotiate with teams from July 1-11, but can't sign contracts until July 12. Based on an estimated $52,500,000 salary cap, there are five teams (Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, New Orleans/Oklahoma City and Toronto) that will have significant room under the cap.

    The Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz could have more than the $5,000,000 mid-level exception, however, those scenarios are unlikely.

    Here's a salary cap breakdown for Atlanta, Charlotte, Chicago, New Orleans/Oklahoma City and Toronto and how much cap space will be available for each team. Maximum cap room can occur for each team if they renounce all free agents, decline team options and waive players with limited salary protection.

    I like the way the Bobcats are set up with Okafor, Felton, Morrison and some other decent prospects while also having 25M in cap space.

    The Bulls aren't wasting any time in getting to work on their roster. They're gonna be scary defensively this year. They were already tough last year, now add Ben Wallce and PJ Brown and good luck getting 90 on them.
