Honoring contracts isn't a bargained for right, it is inherent in American law. American sports are monopoly exempt.
It won't get to this point regardless. It seems like people are wishing the players have no leverage, that decertification won't work in their favor. Its just a tool to force a deal. Bettman is refusing to negotiate, this is the avenue now.
Aren't all contracts subject to the CBA? Hence why players even can get locked-out (ie. not paid) or the salary could be not paid fully (under a different CBA). So I'd say after decertification those contracts are void.
