Are 1y + 8y agreements technically possible?

I was wondering. Under the new CBA, teams have the right to sign their current players to a 8-year deals, where as all other teams can only make offers for 7 years.

Also, I know that it's possible for a player to sign a deal that would start the next season during their last contract year.

I was wondering if it's technically possible for a team and a player to make such a deal:

- Team/Player sign a 1-year deal starting now that lasts until 1st of July 2015
- Team/Player immediately sign a 8-year deal that STARTS the 1st of July 2015

Basically a 9-year agreement in two steps?

Unless it changed, a player on a 1 year deal can't re-sign until January.

I do believe contract extensions can not be signed till January, so to answer your question no

Players with 1 yr contracts can't renew until January. Players with multi-yr contracts can renew with a 1 yr left on their current contract.

Simple, yet the perfect answer.
