Detroit Pistons can offer free agents up to $33,437,000 with MLE

The NBA released its salary-cap figures for the 2010-11 season:

  • Mid-level exception: $5,765,000
  • Salary cap: $58,044,000
  • Luxury tax: $70,307,000

The mid-level exception came out $33,000 less than I projected a month ago. That means Detroit can offer a free agent up to $33,437,000 for a five-year contract.

A luxury tax that high should give Detroit plenty of room to use the full MLE and re-sign Will Bynum and Ben Wallace.

The salary cap is pretty irrelevant for the Pistons, because they will still be above it.
