In the collective bargaining agreement that went into effect on December 9, 2011, the mid level exception will be a lot more limited.
Teams under the luxury tax threshold can offer four-year contracts starting at $5 million, with three percent annual increases. Tax-payers are limited to three-year offers starting at $3 million. The base salaries will increase by three percent every year starting in 2013-14.

Teams that go under the cap at any point cannot use the mid level exception, but can sign players using the "Space Exception" introduced in the 2011 CBA.
