Did Mark Cuban really asked for dumping the Salary Cap? Mike Bass claims there were some “misstatements”./strong>
Tim MacMahon reports for ESPN Dallas:
NBA senior vice president Mike Bass told The Associated Press that Hunter made “several misstatements” during his hour-long podcast with Simmons. Among them was the revelation of the salary cap plan, which Bass said was actually an exception to the cap, not the elimination of it.
“On behalf of the league, Mark Cuban proposed adding a new salary cap exception, not eliminating the salary cap,” Bass said.
“It was the union that, in response, proposed eliminating the salary cap, a proposal that was even worse for the NBA than the union’s prior proposals.”
