Bolded the players that have over 4mil left on their contracts - that's 11 of 18. Plus Malhotra has 2.5mil left, at the end of his career. None of the rest is under 27 years old.

If these are the sessions where a new CBA is finalized, I would bet that any compromises favor those players with big contracts. In other words, favorable "make whole" in exchange for concessions down the road. Round 3, 2018-19.
