They will point to preserving space for 2021 free agency but it really is a way to keep the cap number down.
The teams willing to spend will get value free agent signings
I think they should bring back the amnesty again
They should keep the cap flat at 109 but I am not of the opinion that the big spenders should get another amnesty. No one held a gun to these owners heads for some of these crazy contracts.
GSW, 76ers, Nets, Celtics, Bucks need to be held accountable for their spending.
I'm fine with no amnesty but teams make moves on cap projections provided by the league. And the league doesn't want contenders not improving their teams because of this unexpected financial situation. I don't blame any team for not seeing a pandemic coming in the summer of 2019.
If the revenue losses are 20 - 25%, that would be a projected cap of 90 million or less. I agree and think a flat cap is the best compromise.
