B. Players and their contracts are re worked to take the hit of the nba's caps. Ie they will recieve money for the NEW max contract of the hard cap era
I think if they implement a hard cap it won't count towards current contracts. That's why so many teams with big time players wanted to sign there players before the new rules. Besides, if the league has to wait until all current contracts expire, then it can never implement a hard cap because players sign new contracts all the time.
