Why is a struggling team overpaying? No poor team should be spending to the cap or overpaying players. It's like yelling at the kid at the cashier for getting your order wrong after you ate the burger! So when owners are whining about costs after they handed out gross salaries, why should the players pay the price? The players just want their contract.

What is the purpose of the cap? How is that purpose defeated by luxury tax or cap space trading?
