Oversimplified, the "Salary Cap" restricts gross payroll that that an NBA team can pay and applies fairly severe penalties to any team that goes over the "Cap".

So, when a team doesn't spend the entire permitted amount, it is said to have "cap room."  Hold that thought.

Now, the general estimate is that the NBA, as a league, is approximately $400M upside down, which would be an obligation of its member teams.

Thus, the question:  How can any team in a league $400M underwater be truly said to have "cap room."
