A rather large obstacle seems to be the leagues insistence on a rollback vs. the players insistence that the owners live up to deals they've already signed.

A compromise could be the players agreeing to a 50-50 split, a maximum length of 5 years for future contracts, and the six year contract length the owners want, in exchange for all current contracts being honoured as signed.

To solve the cap problem caused by those contracts, all current ones would have their cap hits reduced by 20%. That would bring the top payroll teams cap hits down from $68 million, to $55 million.

The money situation would still be problematic in the short term, but going forward, the rise of the owners share from 43% to 50% should put almost all of them back in the black.
