The contracts on the books remain unchanged. They are adjusted for escrow, but the amount of escrow taken off is somewhat limited due to the "make whole" amount the league is giving. So the league is giving the players $300 million over and above the 50% of HRR to limit the effect escrow will have on their contracts in the first few years of the deal since it would be substantial going from 57% share to 50%
