Kings not that far over salary cap: Bogut

Bogut has said the Kings aren't spending that much over the cap and has also called out other sides who aren't spending enough.



""I can tell you we're not far over that salary cap. It's pretty tight," Bogut said after landing in Perth on Thursday.

"I can tell you for a fact that there are clubs spending as little as they can as well.

"If clubs are going to try to go as far below the salary cap as they can, they're going to get the same results they're getting.""

Yeah, lets have yet another thread to discuss this...

Sure, Bogut says some stupid stuff, but even he must have been joking if he actually said this.

You'd be surpassing Wortho/Homicide levels of gullibility if you beleived for one second that Sydney are "not that far over the cap"

This is just more shit from Bogut, like him saying that salaries should be published, when he knows full well that will never happen

D2.0 knows everything, his knowledge is superior. There is marquee rules that let players like Bogut salary be worth 100g.

For your information Kay salary last season was at marquee level which can't be right because Perth fans believe he plays for free.

"There is marquee rules that let players like Bogut salary be worth 100g. "

$100,000 is not and never was the marquee threshold.

The original marquee player rule, when introduced, said that the first $150,000 of the first marquee player's salary only would count towards salary cap for luxury tax purposes. For the second marquee player, that was raised to $200,000; to $250,000 for the third marquee player; and to $300,000 for the fourth marquee player.

Those rules also said that for each marquee player after the first, the number of restricted players (imports) allowed for the team would reduce by one. i.e., "Any team may replace any one or more of its restricted player entitlements with an additional
non-restricted marquee player". (NBL media release, 30 March 2016)

When Bogut signed, it was reported (The Daily Telegraph, 24 April 2018) as "$160,000 of this deal will count on the Kings' salary cap, which is part of the NBL’s local marquee signing set-up." So the marquee threshold has been raised over time, presumably as the salary cap has increased.

Does anyone know if the rule that the second and additional marquee players replace imports has been dropped or otherwise changed? If not, then Bogut is the Kings' only marquee signing.

It's also worth noting that the original rule changes stated that a contract review panel would set notional salaries for every player on a team and those would be used to determine the team's salary bill, for cap purposes. There's no guarantee those notional salaries bear any resemblance to the actual amounts paid to players. According to Aussie Hoopla (http://www.aussiehoopla.com/nbl-free-agent-tracker/), that part of the salary cap regulations is still in place.

Marquee status can be nominated for only part of the season, so the Kings would have started with two marquees and will return to two marquees when Moller and Cooks are healthy.

All this talk of the cap and luxury tax is well and good, but how much are the Kings paying their guys under the table?

Some morons above clearly have no fucking idea what a Marquee is.

So okay Bogut is a Marquee. So Fucking What?
You really think that in a conversation about salaries we should just ignore Bogut's $1M+ because he's a Marquee.

The current marquee rules (and you dont seem to understand the difference) relate to the super tax imposed. The tax has never been published so nobody cares.

"For your information Kay salary last season was at marquee level which can't be right because Perth fans believe he plays for free."

God you are such a moron. Every team is entitled to treat up to 4 players as Marquees, reduced by the number of imports. So every team can treat their highest paid Aussie as a Marquee. Perth last year could in fact have two.

"Jawai was a marquee player too, according to this idiot."
Jawai was the marquee player, cockface, do try to keep up. The marquee rule at the time was completely different. We had a hard cap and no tax, but teams were allowed one player outside the cap. Thats how Perf were able to sign Jawai despite already having a stacked team. It's also how guys like Motum, Khazza, AJ, etc, were able to return to Australia.
