Apparently ESPN is going to launch a streaming service to go along with this:

ESPN has made plenty of forays into streaming video, but services like WatchESPN typically require that you already have TV service. That partly defeats the point of viewing online, don't you think? However, you might not face that limitation for much longer. According to sources for the Wall Street Journal, the NBA has signed a pact with Disney (ESPN's parent) to launch a new streaming service that doesn't demand a cable or satellite subscription -- a big deal for ESPN, which still makes most of its money from paid TV. Just how it differs from the NBA's own League Pass isn't clear, although both are focused on live regular season games. In other words, you'll still have to fire up an old-fashioned TV to watch the playoffs in real-time. Just when it arrives isn't clear, although you may not have to wait long for an announcement. If the tipsters are accurate, the NBA will announce its partnership as early as Monday.

That's pretty awesome if true. I feel like most professional sports (especially the NFL) are missing out on the chance to reach as many fans as possible by neglecting the streaming market. MLB's the only one that's gotten it right so far.

You got to think Kobe and Duncan probably feel like they can play another 5-years after seeing this new television deal.

Ya so 1.7 billion dollar increase cut in half for the players divided by 30 teams = 28.3333 million dollar cap increase. + The estimated 5 mil increase this year and next, we could be looking at a 100 million dollar salary cap and 30 million dollar + max contracts. Average NBA contract will be around 7 million dollars! Holy ****ing crap the NBA is booming.

Salaries are going to get huge. were going to be thinking about salaries differently.

Depending how the NBA structures the cap increase, the MLE could rise to 10 million annually with the salary cap ranging between $79m to $89m.

We will be seeing much more MLB sized contracts handed out. 15-17 million could be the going rate for someone like Greg Monroe for example. Someone like Durant, Curry, Howard, Rose would be eligible for 150 million.

I only wish that Turner had the higher exclusivity rights over Disney. I just think ESPN and ABC's coverage is God awful. TNT/TBS/TruTV/CBS do so such a good job for March Madness, I can only imagine how a NBA Finals on CBS would be over what we have now.

Jesus fuccin Christ. Max players now will be pocket change compare to the new deal max players.

Here we are *****in about some of the guys getting overpaid but people forget they are getting these contracts base on the new deal coming up so they definitely took advantage of it

Ditto. Even in football i think fox's coverage is way better then espn. Some may disagree with me on baseball but i actually like tbs' s broadcast.

I'd take it a step further. I want NBA on NBC back!

Its not a net gain of 1.7 billion annually. The lockout was between players and owners, the nba is niether and there was no enumeration for league executive salary and expenditure (given the size of this deal both will likely go up) so unless they work for free they see the money first, I could see up to 100mil/yr, maybe more, of that being counted toward annual cost of league operation (bigger audience means more expenses plus a huge payday for the people at the negotiating table), so 1.6 /2 = .8; .8/30= 26.6 at 50/50, but cba says 49/51 in favor of white and has a 10% escrow hold on players revenue so 26.6 -2.6 =~ 24mil increase in cap per year. And that's just what I could come up with off the top of my head with legit reasons for deductions. Im sure accountants paid by billionaires can carve out a bigger chunk of that than I can.

Still a significant increase, but lets see what league financial offices has up its sleeves before we start rosterbating

Pretty sure they discussed this already and said that they would slowly work to the new cap, not just add that big of a chunk in one off season. I believe it will start next year.

This is why Lebron has a 1 year opt out. Brilliant move.

I wonder if the league min will change. You might have guys at the end of the bench making 3 mill a year doing nothing.

Maybe not, but the players are definitely going to strike for a higher percentage.

Good article by Lowe that breaks down the contract and effects.

Everyone excited and happy the cap is going up should also be excited and happy when your cable/satellite bill goes up $20-$30 bucks over the next few years. It's either that, or....I'm sure all the satellite owners remember the Fox Sports nonsense a couple years ago... same thing will happen with ESPN/TNT.

That would be fine if they could find a way to better distribute the talent. Think it gets ugly when guys team up when there's 30 teams, it would be uglier with 2 more bottom feeders.
