With this news, the salary cap now takes a $2M jump and the luxury tax takes a $3M jump from where it was last year. The Suns recently just traded for star guard Bradley Beal to form a big three in Phoenix.

Between Devin Booker, Kevin Durant, and Beal, the Suns will be spending $131 million on just those three players alone. Factor in Center Deandre Ayton, and the Suns will be spending close to the luxury tax.

With the new second apron contract getting ready to kick in for the 2024-25 season, the Suns need all the room they can get in hopes to round out their roster for this season.

With this news, it also bodes well for the Suns to be able to spend well on rotational pieces this offseason that can contribute right away around Booker, Durant, Beal, and possibly Ayton if he’s not traded.
