One thought occurred to me on the new CBA and all the benefits that Pacers may get. I don't think the big money/big market teams are going to allowed themselves to be screwed in this deal. The talk of a hard cap where teams will just have to jettison players to get under I think has NO chance of happening. I can't see the big spending teams ever allowing this to happen.
I mostly think the whole, the small market team will benefit great thing is being over played in the CBA speculations by the media.
Not being pessimistic, just saying the Pacers may benefit from cap space, but it may not be as much as is being speculated.
Last thing, how much will they be under the real salary cap, not the luxury tax? Do we know? Thats the main number to consider now I think since the expirings are now a moot point.
