Despite revenue sharing, NBA teams lose money

The NBA has been very profitable, we can see that with the huge increase in salaries of NBA players the past few offseasons. But despite this, it seems like a few NBA teams are still losing even after the revenue sharing by the NBA.

Brian Windhorst and Zach Lowe of ESPN has reported that nine teams have lost money last season. These teams are the Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Detroit Pistons, Memphis Grizzlies, Milwaukee Bucks, San Antonio Spurs, Washington Wizards, and the Orlando Magic. Teams that took a loss last year all came from relatively small markets. Before the revenue sharing payments 30 teams took a loss, but after the revenue share it came down to nine.

One owner told ESPN that a small market has to work hard and run its team better to profit yet a team with a big market can run their team poorly but yet still earn. It seems like there are rumors that the NBA is looking into why these teams are losing and could possibly now talk about team relocation.

Cunningham also thought about signing with the Minnesota TImberwolves but later on decided to play for the Pelicans next season.
