So I'm trying to figure out the tax implications of a Rudy Gay move, especially in the future. As somebody pointed out (I can't find the original post to quote/like it). The big problem will be fitting a large Rudy Gay extension into the Cavs current roster after this year is over. The luxury tax threshold next year is predicted to be $122M, while this year it is $111M. If Rudy Gay takes a contract starting at $20M/year (compared to Shumperts $10.3M) per year. Then he will take up almost all of that increase. The thing I can't figure out is -- how much do LBJ/KI/Love/Thompson contracts go up if the salary cap increases? I think only KIs is actually linked to the salary cap year to year (LBJs is maxed out at 7.5% per year increases, Thompson isn't a max deal (just very close numerically), and I'm not 100% sure about Love. I also know that KI took a cut on the Derrick Rose deal in his contract -- meaning he only gets 27.5% of cap instead of 30%. I'm not sure if that is changed by the new CBA?
