Yeah, but players losing 24% of their salary affects Qualifying offers and arbitration. The salaries will go back up, at about the 10% or per year they went up under the current CBA (quite possibly even 15% this offseason). But it certainly isn't an instantaneus thing. And with such a high % of player contracts tied to their previous years salary, or what other signed players are making, the 24% rollback would affect future player earnings. Not enough to make it worth the owners while in a 6 year deal, but over 2? Maybe.

BTW, I'm almost positive the players would NOT agree to their proposal with a 2 year term instead of 6.
