Well, if baseball is any indication, the players association will not want a salary floor. The baseball owners were considering this during the last deal but the players did not want it. Not sure the exact reasons but probably has to do with it artificially affecting the market.

What I think makes more sense is to ensure that teams spend any luxury tax revenue on personnel. I'm unsure how this can be enforced but it's better than watching the tightwad owners receiving millions and putting it right into their pockets without attempting to improve their team.
