How the updated salary cap will affect the Portland Trail Blazers

Unfortunately, next year’s window of opportunity just got a little bit smaller. While the Portland Trail Blazers have been counting on big money coming off the books for the summer of 2020, the NBA has recently scaled back the total cap space available to each team next offseason. This move was made in effort to prevent a situation like the cap spike back in 2016 where many teams strung out their future by offering bloated contracts to average players.

This decision should in theory help maintain the competitive balance that we are finally starting to see after nearly a decade of little to no parity in the NBA.
