If Indiana Pacers guard Paul George misses the 2014-15 season – and that's a strong possibility after sustaining a fractured tibia and fibula in a USA Basketball showcase Friday – the Pacers can receive some salary cap relief under a clause called the disabled player exception. According to the 2011 collective bargaining agreement, the Pacers can sign a player to a one-year deal for "an amount equal to the non-taxpayer mid-level salary exception," which is $5.305 million for 2014-15 season. The Pacers could also acquire a player for the same amount plus $100,000, but that player must have just one year left on his contract, according the CBA. The Pacers must apply for a disabled player exception with the league office.
