What is the Taxi Squad?
AnswerJan 6, 2021
Special for the 2020-2021 season, each team will have a Taxi Squad. The taxi squad will have a minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 players. Taxi squad players are treated like being in the minors for purposes of waivers and salary cap. If a player needs waivers to go to minors, they require waivers to be on the taxi squad. Just like the minors, the first $1.075M (burying threshold) of a player on the taxi squad does not count against the cap.
