I thought they might go to 24m gap. Sounds like $20m or more. Should be good for low end teams.

Also helps the players as it lowers demand which should lower total salary paid and ease escrow claw backs ie players getting closer to full contracts paid.
From Friedman:

On variance, lowest-paid season of any multi year deal can be no lower than 50 per cent of highest season
expected that. Ends backdiving a little.
