The owners won't go to war over 2-3% this time since they'd have $600 in expansion fees coming in, but what happens in 6 years when the CBA comes up again, and they have to get that 2-3% since adding another two teams just isn't an option?
Not only that, but the league needs to have a couple of soft landing sports for teams in trouble. It would be silly to burn those options just to avoid a prolonged work stoppage to get their house in order.
IMO there are 4 "soft landing spots"
Burn 2 of those with expansion + you keep 2 open for relocation.
