Yeah, that's true, if both of those things were added to the CBA, Orlando would be in good shape. They could block Dwight from leaving, while also getting Gilbert's contract off the cap related books, although they'd still have to pay him.
But I think it will be very tough for the owners to get the franchise player tag. If they hold out for that addition to the CBA, I could definitely see the lockout lasting a long time.
