10 Reasons Why Dwyane Wade Should Take a Pay Cut
- Updated: June 4, 2015
3. Salary Cap
The Heat will benefit from the new media deal that kicks in for the league heading into the 2016-17 season. During that offseason, the salary cap of each team will skyrocket from $67 million to roughly $89 million. While that extra dough certainly helps matters such as this one, the Heat already have $23 million on average tied up to Chris Bosh over the next four seasons.
If the organization gives Wade around $20 million on average, it will have roughly half of its salary cap devoted to two players that are past their prime.
