NBA Projects $118M Cap For 2020-21

Sep 17, 2018 9:45 PM

The NBA has informed every team of updated projected salary cap and tax levels for the 2019-20 season ($109 million, $132 million) and 2020-21 ($118 million, $143 million).

Since the cap jumped significantly in 2016, it has remained relatively flat.

The cap is $2 million higher for the 2020-21 season due to BRI projections and a projected shortfall-based adjustment.

Netflix Has No Plans To Pursue Live Sports Programming

Sep 17, 2018 1:12 PM

Netflix has not plans to pursue live sports broadcasting, which is something their rival Amazon has done.

“I think in terms of live sports there’s nothing we can do differently from a television broadcaster, so it doesn’t add additional value,” said Netflix VP of business development EMEA Maria Ferreras. “You can never say never, but there’s no plans to go into that.”

Netflix, however, will continue to look to pursue documentary programming in the sports category.

The NBA is currently in a multi-year deal with ESPN and Turner while they've also worked with YouTube.
