I think 7 years and 30 teams is a lot. I assume it's the same teams spending a lot year after year.

You're right that cap spending and non-cap spending will be correlated. Should not be an issue with enough teams.
The teams are interrelated. Creating a system in which you look at data that hasn't had time to normalize is flawed. You can do it but what would it prove when you don't start at a true equal footing?
