Does the CBA place a limitation on "fringe benefits" for players? I've for years been stuck on the fact that cost of living varies so greatly from city to city that it just isn't fair for the cap to not be at least adjusted to account for it. New York Rangers (yes, my favorite team) have to pay insane prices for apartments in NYC, and while I'm sure a lot of players are more than willing to do so because of the accompanying lifestyle, there have to be many that would rather live in the burbs or a rural area if given the choice. So I was wondering, is a team allowed to pay for a player's housing? We already know that they pay for transportation costs and food on road trips and what not. But, can a cap strapped (not cash strapped) team offer a guy a sweet penthouse apartment and say, a Tesla Model S in lieu of an extra $1M/yr on his contract?
