The thought would be that player X (superstar) is leaving his current team regardless of the deal they can offer him. So rather than letting him walk as a UFA for nothing and signing a 7 year deal with a new team, he signs the allowable 8 year deal with his current team, who then deals him to his desired destination for some package of players, picks and/or prospects. The question is whether this is allowed in the new CBA.
