New luxury tax records?

New luxury tax records?

The 2021-22 season was that of all records in terms of luxury tax since the total bill was 481 million dollars. 7 teams paid the levy, with the Golden State Warriors taking the top spot, smashing the Nets’ old record of $170.3 million. But those records could well be broken this season.

In any case, this is what the projections currently say since 13 teams could pay the luxury tax if their workforce remains in good condition. However, it is quite possible that this will change by the end of the season, because some teams will have to make changes in their workforce, precisely to avoid this luxury tax. This is particularly the case for the Hawks and the Blazers, who are barely above the luxury tax and who should cut down to avoid paying it.
