Could leave room for some shenanigans in the middle years with the 35% variance.
So far we haven't received any details about the variance but I doubt that is true, all reports so far have suggested that the 50% minimum applies to all years, not just the last.
I've seen conflicting reports of whether that 50% minimum is of the first year or the highest year. Along with the 35% y-o-y variance and 8y contract limit, it doesn't really matter, teams can't circumvent the cap.
