technically speaking (and which is why the "make-whole" is so far apart) current contracts extend for the next at least 10 seasons. so all of those contracts would remain separate is what the PA is saying?

linked cap for the duration of the CBA with more money kicked into the make whole, plus a sliding scale down to 50/50 AND a cap on escrow would be a reasonable solution in my eyes

the deal-breaker for the owners is the players want the guaranteed money. compromise is the conditions i posted above and i think would address players concerns
