The NBA salary cap will reportedly be $109 million next season. While teams can exceed that number, in doing so they have to pay a tax. Given that projected cap figure and players already under contract for next season — not to mention those not under contract, including restricted free agent Tyus Jones — it’s easy to see how important it will be for the Timberwolves to round out their roster with inexpensive talent. Here’s a look at Wolves players on guaranteed contracts and their salaries in 2019-20:

 

Andrew Wiggins $27.5 million

Karl-Anthony Towns* $27.3 million

Jeff Teague** $19 million

Gorgui Dieng $16.2 million

Robert Covington $11.3 million

Dario Saric $3.5 million

Josh Okogie $2.5 million

Keita Bates-Diop $1.4 million

Total: $108.6 million

*-Salary would increase by more than $5 million if Towns is named All-NBA

**-Player option, but Teague has already agreed to pick up that option
