Some teams already have.

AFA the idea mentioned above of the league enforcing rules to prevent trading guys away for squat little to get around the cap ... this is something that's probably covered in the league's by-laws (which are not public - or at least I've never seen a copy of them). It's not specifically mentioned in the CBA, so to a point we're speculating on this.

GuloGulo - this also answers your question; the details are very likely in the league by-laws, but from what I've seen the league can (A) force the team to drop players outright until coming into compliance, (B) levy fines, and/or (C) forfeit games in which the team is over the cap.
