Deeks: Orlando Magic Owe More Than $85 Million in Salary This Season

New, comments

Mark Deeks, who runs the indispensable ShamSports.com, has updated that site with nearly complete salary information on every NBA team, including the Orlando Magic; the only Magic contract figure on which he's unsure is J.J. Redick's. That's the link you should consult for every salary-related need you have, and not just for the Magic. Not counting Redick's salary, the Magic are on the hook for over $85 million this season, and that's before adding the dollar-for-dollar luxury tax payment. Orlando management is indeed shelling out to put a winning team on the floor this season.

Again, let me reiterate: Sham's info is rock-solid. If you're a general NBA fan, ShamSports is a top-five site you need to keep bookmarked, or in your RSS aggregator. I'm not kidding when I say "indispensable." He was generous enough to write this guest post on Otis Smith's cap-management for OPP last September.

His most recent blog post is this in-depth look at available free agents, at all five positions. Few people, if any, work harder than Mark does. You owe it to yourself to make him a regular read.
