Salary cap Rumors

If the league truly wants to create more parity, the Detroit Pistons team president and coach proposed radical changes Friday after the Pistons’ practice. Eliminate the draft and maximum contracts. “I’d get rid of it, just get rid of the draft altogether,” Van Gundy said when asked lottery reform. “We’d just deal with the salary cap. Make all (rookies) free agents coming in and if I want to go give a guy $50 million a year, good, but I got to do it under the cap.”
Without max contracts, Durant could easily get a deal worth north of $40 million per season. “Is he (Durant) going to give up $25 million a year to keep the team (Warriors) together? Hell, no,” Van Gundy said to laughter. “Nobody’s going to buy a ticket to see the first guy off the bench. I have great love and respect for those guys, but I’m just saying it would be a fairer system, we’d get parity in the league and then the draft picks would be out there. Fit them under your cap.”
