The new designated player rule for veterans and the over-38 amendment is going to lead to nba stars being handed fat guaranteed contracts that pay them max money way past their prime like MLB. But Kudos, for the new designated veteran player rule so guys like Curry don't need 10+ years of league experience to sign the largest max deal (35% of cap with 8% raises) possible.
This is the way the owners wanted it set up. They could easily remove the cap % of below 7yrs, 7-9yrs, and 10+ years, but that would mean paying younger guys more money (which they should do since they'll be closer to their primes) and they don't want to do that.
