These figures are not counted toward a team's Luxury Tax Allocation.

Exceptions

Exceptions are essentially "grants" offering teams an additional way to sign players. Exceptions can be split up for multiple player signings, however only one of these exceptions may be used in a season and they cannot be combined.

Trade Exception Details becomes available when a team relinquishes more salary than it acquires during a trade. The "credit" balance remains as an exception that can be used within the next year to acquire salary via trade without further relinquishing additional salary.
