You'd get rid of heavy front loading and also make it impossible to tack on BS years at league minimum, or at a huge discount compared to cap hit.
There is an easier solution. The cap hit is always the highest salary point for one year during the deal.

6.5, 6.5, 6.5, 6.5, 1

Salary for the fifth year is 6.5. Simples. Owners can front load the **** out of it, not going to get them anywhere.
