One Set of Boundaries : Rumours coming out suggest that the New CBA will be close to : $22 mil Floor - $36 mil Ceiling (excluding team benefits) and a Luxury tax of $1 for $1 starting at $29 mil. Two Set of Rules : Small market teams will receive Revenue Sharing from Big markets .. Some of which will be the Luxury tax money collected Parity Close but no Cigar : Those teams that are collecting Revenue Sharing money will not be able to spend into Luxury tax range. it would make not sense to give them money and then fine them to give it right back again. Conclusion : Big Market teams that provide Revenue Sharing can spend to $36 mil Hard Cap ceiling .. Small market teams that collect Revenue Sharing can spend to $29 mil Luxury Tax floor All teams must be above $ 22 mil Hard Cap floor SO what does this all mean .. When a big UFA hits the market and we are speaking of Cap Space available .. Its not equal at all ... Small markets would ice a team below $29 mil & Big markets below $36 mil. So a small market team is NOT competing equally for the services of UFA.. $7 mil CAP advantage to Big markets in Cap space (which is actually $14 mil in actual spending including the $7 mil Luxury tax). Does this not make logical sense?.
