Agreed. But a hard cap, which eliminates birds rights, presents serious problems for a number of the top teams. I'm sure Cuban is really hoping the league retains a soft cap system.

That and I think if it came down to it, Dirk would just restructure his contract to make sure Dallas can field a strong team every year.
Maybe. If a type of soft cap system remains, then I could see Dirk giving back a bit of dough. However, if there is a hard cap, he might as well just keep his boat load of cash, because giving money back won't accomplish much., unless he returns about $10 mill a year, which is a lot of money to give up.

It's all just speculation until the new CBA is worked out. I think the Fernandez move is a nice insurance policy in case Cuban gets screwed by the new regulations.
