Basically it's a 62 million Cap - to be negotiated max and min range for the cap - above cap only for exceptions (Bird and mid-level?) - So assuming 8mill on either side and you get a cap ceiling at 70 mill and a cap floor at 54 mill. Using projections of next years salaries there are 16 teams under the cap floor and 4 teams over the cap ceiling. Under this type of setting each of those 16 teams would need to commit to an average of 14 mill more in salaries. While the 4 teams over the cap ceiling would need to cut an average of $9 mill (really less then this as LA needs to cut 25 mill and the other three teams over the ceiling need to cut around $2.5 mill)

So if the players reject this it will play out that the players are objecting to making good salaries in places like Sacramento and New jersey - pretty weak position
