CBA Considers Salary Cap

By Community | September 7, 2012

After last year’s influx of highly-paid foreign players in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), the league might impose salary cap similar to that of the NBA.

Beijing Ducks General Manager, Yuan Chao, said: “If we can have a salary restriction in the new season, it will be good for the club’s revenue. But we can’t rush it and just simply copy the NBA model. We are two totally different leagues.”

A league official said that a “rough prototype is being discussed” among club owners and a select group of experts, lawyers and analysts.

CBA Competition Department Director, Bai Xilin, said: “We’ve been talking about how to make it happen recently, and there is no timeline yet. We will keep the media posted when we work out something practical.”{jcomments on}
