Today on BRING IT IN, TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott and David Thorpe discuss: The Norman Powell trade shows the extraordinary value of ducking under the luxury tax line. There will be more deals like that. In the premiership, only a handful of wealthy teams get to compete at the top. The NBA is very different, but might only have a few teams willing to cross the luxury tax line in the years to come, now that it’s so lucrative to be under the line.
I might be misremembering, but haven't the Cavs already shown they'd go into the luxury tax for a contender, as they did in the (second) LeBron era?
