Multiple sources report that the salary cap figure will remain level this season, at $58 million, and projections are that the cap for the 2012-13 season would be approximately $60 million to $61 million.

“That’s what we’ve been discussing, though the exact dollar amount is not set until the new deal is done,’’ one league source said.

If these numbers hold up, the Knicks would have significant room under the cap next summer when Chris Paul, Deron Williams and Dwight Howard are slated to hit the free-agent market.
