Cap holds attached to free agents coming off rookie deals could jump to 250 and 300 percent of their prior salaries, which is an increase from 200 and 250 percent in the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement.

The San Antonio Spurs, Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards held off on extensions with Kawhi Leonard, Andre Drummond and Bradley Beal, respectively, to maintain a lower cap number.

Cap holds attached to players with more experience would stay the same, though that could change. The Golden State Warriors are counting on Stephen Curry's $18 million cap hold for the 2017 offseason to fit Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.
