50/50 split with some prorated cap hits seems fair to me. May not get to actual 50/50 as fast as the owners want, but that seems like reasonable punishment for making deals they had no intention of keeping.
This is exactly the point that makes me have minimal sympathy for the way the owners have approached this. On July 1, about half the owners in the league were trying to sign two players to the exact type of contracts that they are saying are now killing the league. No matter what the new CBA will stipulate, the owners will immediately look for loopholes to circumvent the rules that they are locking out the players to get.
