It's true that in terms of cap space it's the new standard franchise player contract
But it's still not $20 mil in real life. It's $30.
That's not an issue for the Knicks or lakers but the wolves aren't a profitable team and this sure isn't gonna help.
It's getting to be a league where a couple teams can compete because they have talent stacked and a couple of teams can afford to pay for talent.
But there is no way they will be able to pay butler, Wiggins and towns the super max deals they will all be on at some point soon.
Things will change
The league can't have 6 profitable teams and the rest losing while handing out these contracts
It's not the league's job to prevent teams from giving out contracts they can't afford.
But it might be a factor in the new cba negiotiations
