Has this CBA put an end to back-loaded cap circumvention contracts in the future?

It's not circumvention unless the players retire early. With the new rules where the last season has to be at least 50% of the highest season, you won't have "retirement" contracts and no circumvention.
Salaries have always been allowed to vary from season to seaon. It was only when older players were given contracts that approached 40 years of age that people started to cry foul.
If a 30 year old player signed this 8 year contact, would you call it "circumvention"?
$11 million cap hit.
