I'm pretty sure this contract would be allowed today:

Year 1: $6MM
Year 2: $6
Year 3: $10
Year 4: $11
Year 5: $12
Year 6: $9
Year 7: $9
Year 8: $7

Cap hit: $8.75MM

For whatever crazy reason why, the player could retire after Year 7, in which the player made a total of $63MM, the total cap hit was $61.25MM. That means they saved $1.75MM. If this contract was signed before the CBA, that would go against the cap. If this contract was signed after the CBA, it wouldn't.

Edit - I could change Year 8 to $6MM to make it even more of a benefit.
