The 2012-13 L.A. Lakers Have the Highest Payroll in the NBA, and the Only One Over $100M

Only six NBA teams are under the salary cap this season, which is “set at $58.044 million.”

Here’s a look at every NBA team’s full payroll and cap hits this year, and how far each is over or under the cap.

Below that, I’ve sorted the teams by payroll.

Thanks to basketball-reference.com, which  just keeps getting better and better. The payroll information is a great new feature that also breaks salaries down by individual player. Click on any team below to see.
