Or use it to take some ownership like Mario did?
In any case, Morozov is the only one besides Mario that's even close to that, making something like $1.5 M in base salary. WIth a payroll below $22 M, there isn't much cutting the other players can do to help without serious percentage cuts to their salary.
And I believe the players offered to take a 10% pay cut across the board in one of the CBA negotiations, but the owners stuck to their "hard cap" guns and rejected it.
