An increase of 400K. WhooHoo!!!
If it comes about that the cap will remain stagnant- like this- until 2016, that will be 4 straight years of no big increases. Meaning there will be a lot of dissapointed players, and many being let go by their current teams.

Just like California house prices, the cap couldn't keep increasing forever.

It will be interesting to see how a stagnant cap affects free agency.

This is due to the new CBA. Players are getting a lower % of team revenue than they were before, so the cap was actually supposed to go down something like $5-$10 mil this year. Some teams would have been in trouble because of contracts already given out and the current FA players would have unfairly been payed lower than previous and future FAs. The solution was to increase the cap back to current levels, essentially bringing future $ into this year and next year from '14 and '15. That is why the cap is staying the same for several years even though team revenue will be going up.
