Milwaukee projects to have about $67 below the luxury-tax line next season to keep those four. That calculation included the Bucks getting Mirza Teletovic’s salary excluded. Milwaukee applied for career-ending-injury relief last month, and an NBA Fitness to Play panel has apparently ruled.
Shams Charania of The Athletic:
Teletovic was counting $3.5 million toward the salary cap and luxury tax this season and each of the next two seasons. He’ll still get paid, but that money getting cleared from salary-cap and luxury-tax calculations will be a boon to the Bucks – an expected one.
Now, Milwaukee can, too – with the most favorable payroll conditions.
