- 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.
