However, because the players are paying so much escrow (mainly as a result of too many teams above the midpoint), I suspect they'll agree to keep it at the 5% escalator.
That is the section I referenced above. A higher adjustment, if chosen, would come through the escalator then. So, a >5% escalator is possible for this summer.
