The new salary cap number will be announced Monday, and it’s not expected to give the Wizards much relief. The seven players they have signed to contracts will collect more than $54 million in compensation.
That means the Wizards may have only the mid-level exception to work with.
Note — For the first time, Comcast SportsNet will broadcast all five of the Wizards‘ games from the 2007 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. The Wizards will be one of 22 teams participating in the camp. The league, which runs from July 6 to July 15, also will include the Chinese national team.
The Wizards‘ team, which will be made up of rookies and free agents, opens against Sacramento on July 10.
