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

Teams may try to get around it by claiming players are injured in the latter years so the cap hit doesn't count, but the league won't take a teams word for it and anyone trying to trick the system can be sure to be punished severely.
Haven't heard any changes to existing 35 year old contract rule. I know it was being discussed, as was having the team originally signing the player retaining the cap hit. Have you heard any confirmation that either of these rules are in the new CBA?
