This is a pretty huge salary drop.
It could be a huge salary drop. We'll have to await for details on what it means for the cap in 2012-13. The salary drop may not be that substantial compared to 2011-12. The players' take will decrease but the actual figure may not decline.

Seems like the League is also willing to drop some of its conditions on contracts. Again, difficult to assess without much information.
