The decisions by Carlos Boozer, Mehmet Okur and Kyle Korver to play out the final year of their contracts in Utah all but guarantees the Jazz will exceed the luxury-tax threshold for next season. Still needing to add at least two players to their roster — perhaps Paul Millsap and another point guard — here's how much the Jazz will pay to the 11 players who, barring trades, are set to be on their team in 2009-10:
Team salary so far:$73,907,990
Projected salary cap:$57,300,000-$58,600,000
Projected luxury-tax threshold:$70,000,000-$72,000,000
NOTES: Teams must pay a per-dollar tax for every dollar over the luxury-tax threshold ... Teams must carry at least 13 players under contract at all times ... Maynor must sign his rookie deal before participating with the Jazz's summer-league team.
