Do I have this right? Is this not a soft cap?

For this season only the cap is $44-$60 million, but teams can spend $70.2 million. Players and owners didn't want to have major movement of players with such a short camp and the summer cap was $70.2 million.

Next season will be $44-$64.3 Million, but the players still only make 50% of HRR with zero escrow limits. I believe that the cap ceiling can not fall below $64.3 million over the life of the CBA, but revenues should be high enough by year 3 to make this moot. Players still only make 50% of HRR and will suffer higher escrow the first few seasons.

The floor should move with revenue.
