The Salary Cap and Tax Level go into effect at 12:01 a.m. ET on Friday, July 1. Teams were permitted to begin negotiating with free agents today at 6:00 p.m. ET — six hours prior to the start of the league’s “moratorium period.” The moratorium period ends at noon ET on Wednesday, July 6.
The minimum team salary, which is set at 90% of the Salary Cap, is $111.290 million for the 2022-23 season.
