This is something the have to bring into the new CBA. 6 or 7 year limit to prevent the perpetular shinangens that go on.

As far as the current rules go, this is a contract that goes right up to the line of what is allowed without stepping over it. No years above 39, no half million dollar years, but managing to reduce what should be a 36 million dollar over 6 years contract to a 4 million dollar cap hit.

Declining contracts are fine, they give something to trade to the bottom teams. Its the years they never actually intend to honour that get to me.
