NBA 2K23 tries to simulate the real world basketball as close as possible. While sometimes it is a positive, it often creates some annoyance to the users in some aspects of the game. Salary caps are very real in NBA. However, they limit a lot of functionality in the game, especially for new players.

In layman’s terms, salary cap is the amount of money a team can spend on its players’ salaries. Each season, NBA has a predetermined sum of money allocated to each team. If a team exceeds this cap, they will have to pay an extra amount for every dollar they spend over the limit. However, there is more to it and you can also toggle it this option off.

There are two types of salary caps in the game, which are the soft and hard caps. The soft cap restricts how much a team can spend in a season. However, it doesn’t dictate how much a player can earn from their salary. The hard cap applies a limit to each player’s earnings.

While salary caps keep in mind the position of the players in a team, it makes managing a team a lot more difficult for the newer players.
