    And now you can see why owners may not want to go over the luxury cap. In three of the four years listed, the tax is greater than the actual salary paid.

    Here is something from Hoops Hype on the tax.

    I'd have to think Klay's injury (though terrible) is good news for Khris. If he wasn't before, he's damn near guaranteed to get maxed by somebody.

    Between KD and Klay, there is going to be a lot of money spent on players that won't see much of the court next season.

    If you are the Knicks do you offer both, have them sit out, and get another lottery pick next season and then shoot for the following year as the big year?

    It will just be interesting to see what happens with both of those players.
