Oh and by the way..

A couple things about free agency that I failed to mention
  • The terms "transitional" and "franchise" may not be included, because they are part of the CBA
  • Teams have to work in a reasonable manner, but there is no salary cap.  That means that a GM could sign player a for a gazillion dollars.  That's one of the reasons they're trying to lay the foundation now
The other inherent problem is that whatever they do as a group could be construed as violating anti-trust because they are - in a sense - colluding to meet a goal.

The owners could simply decide to stonewall and limit the number of signees, but that too reeks of collusion.

And that's why this is so tough.
