Salary Data

Posted by Eli in CBA/Salary Cap

Sorry for the lack of posts over the holidays. Things should pick up soon.

I’ve updated the Salary Links page. Here are some tips for where to look for accurate player salaries.

Current season:

  • ESPN Trade Machine - accurate, updated throughout the season, includes contract lengths but no future season salary information (also note that ESPN’s individual player pages also list players’ salaries for the current season)
  • Dallas Morning News - accurate (but rounded), not updated throughout season
  • SI - accurate but only has salaries from contracts signed before the 06-07 season

Future seasons:

  • SI - accurate but only has salaries from contracts signed before the 06-07 season
  • ShamSports - some figures are estimated, includes hard to find info on guarantees and bonuses
  • Storyteller - some figures are estimated, includes hard to find info on guarantees and bonuses
  • HoopsHype - some figures are estimated

Past seasons:

  • SI - accurate but only has 06-07 season
  • Dallas Morning News - accurate but only has 05-06 and 06-07 seasons
  • Patricia Bender - some figures are estimated, has data from 85-86 on
  • USA Today - some figures are estimated, has data from 01-02 on
  • Rodney Fort - some figures are estimated, collected from various sources, has data from as far back as 67-68 (also has team payrolls from as far back as 51-52)

As a last resort, there are a number of connected posters on the RealGM CBA forum that can answer specific questions.

  1. The Patriots hired Dom Capers as special assistant and secondary coach. This should dramatically improve the Patriots’ defense next season. Capers specialized in pressure based 3-4 defenses as head coach of the Houston Texans and should help the Patriots improve their pass rush, which declined significantly with the loss of Rosevelt Colvin in Week 12 to the Eagles.
