Its in their best interest to have them lowered even to allow for more movement and competition for their services through bidding wars which increases their earning potential by more offer sheets offered.
That is absolutely true but when you compare where the owners are trying to direct free agency within the CBA with their latest offer, in terms of black and white restrictions i.e., contract length, I think this is a better alternative for both sides whereas the market is controlled through mechanisms like the one above instead of concrete controls that defeat the purpose of a free market.
