• Scale Recruit/Existing Recruit Contracts. The recruit scale will also be increased by 45%, with the increase being gradual over three years. The recruit will increase or decrease each year from 2018-19 at the same rate as the Salary Cap. As with the 2011 CBA, there will be a new recruit each season. In the future, the rookie scale will be issued for one season prior to the start of this season`s moratorium period, to reflect the increase or decrease in the salary cap compared to the previous season. Recruit contracts are amended to reflect the 45% increase (gradually over three years). Salary increases for existing rookie contracts are jointly funded by a league-entire fund. Both parties had the option of withdrawing from the collective agreement they signed in 2011 until December 15. However, the League and the players` union managed to secure a framework for an agreement by then, in order to avoid the possibility of a work stoppage. Both sides have agreed to extend the deadline for formal ratification of the new agreement until 13 January 2017, but no agreement is expected. • Commercial exclusions/protected salary. for contracts concluded or renewed from the 2017/18 season: (i) where a player`s salary protection is less than the totality, the exceptions for negotiated players resulting from the trading of such contracts are calculated on the basis of the amount of the player`s protected salary during the relevant season (and not on the basis of the sum of the player`s protected salary and the unprotected salary); and (ii) for trades made after the last day of a regular season, exceptions for negotiated players are limited to the amount of the player`s protected salary for the following season. The current version of the CBA does not contain a table of contents or navigatable bookmarks on the various articles and sections of the agreement.

This makes searching the document complicated and frustrating. Enter bookdown as the method of converting each article in the CBA into a specific chapter in bookdown and each section as a sub-chapter. This also offers different formats for the document to be displayed (HTML, PDF, E-Book) that make it easy to display the CBA. Once the new agreement is ratified, the NBA will continue to operate to a large extent in the same way, but both sides were targeting areas that needed to evolve. Not everything has a solution, but the new CBA brings changes on several key issues. Here`s what`s changed and what remains the same: the group license agreement ends after the 2016-17 season. There will be a transitional period until September 2017. • Potential team of 15 players. If, as of the 2017/18 regular season, the league has on average less than 14.5 players per team (without two-way players) as of the 2017/18 regular season, the above requirement would be increased to generally require teams to carry 15 players in their frames from the following season. • Annual minimum wage scale. As with the rookie scale, there will be a new annual minimum wage scale, which will be spent each season before the moratorium period on contracts, including multi-year contracts signed this season. The 2017-18 annual minimum wage scale increases minimum wages for this season by 45%.

The revised amounts will increase or decrease annually starting in 2018-19, at the same rate as the salary cap. • Exceptional amounts. The intermediate level exceptions and the half-yearly exception for 2017-18 will be increased by 45% compared to the amounts of the 2011 CBA. . .
