Yes, yes and yes.
I briefly proposed this 3 of 4 years ago and it was shot down immediately.
It's a win win on both sides, smaller market teams acquire assets they can use down the road while giving up nothing(since they aren't using the cap space), while bigger market teams can make more trades and become more flexible with extra cap space. Set a limit on how much cap space can be acquired, ie. 5M, so the cap doesn't get out of hand.
Like people said, this allows:
- Small market teams acquire more assets to become more competitive in the future, which creates parity
- Bigger market teams can capitalize on extra salary cap to acquire players to further their cup run
- Trades, a lot more trades will be made thus creating more interest in the league as player movement and trade deadline will be hot topics
Win, win, I don't know why this hasn't been implemented yet.
