EJ Radek reported on ESPN News that it was the same proposal as before with adjusted numbers. Luxury Tax(threshold at $40m), a one time 5% rollback in salaries, adjustment in entry level contracts(unsigned drafted players sold down the river because they dont have a vote yet), revenue sharing.
For Radek's part, he suggested that he thinks a deal could be done, if the owners were willing to come off the hard cap and the players were willing the drop the threshold to $35m, give up arbitration, manditory 10% increases in contracts for contracts under the league average, and lowing the buyout rate from two-thirds to one half.
we will see
