[Charania] Free agent DeMarcus Cousins has agreed to a deal with the Golden State Warriors.

This blows, since a hard cap probably wouldn’t work what would you do to fix this (if you think it needs to be fixed)?

Details def need fleshing out, but I think the NBA should have min salaries for players x years removed from All-NBA seasons (protected for injury ofc).

Even if they’re injured like Cousins, if they hit like 50% of games or perform within 80% of their All-NBA team season, their team should be on the hook for the full “all-nba min”.

This wouldn’t prevent really good teams from getting together (ie all stars) and add undue regulation, but a fleshed our version of this could prevent the ridiculous disparity we have now?

Also wouldn’t really penalize teams for drafting and developing well—no matter how good you are at that as a franchise, correct me if I’m wrong, but no team in the last 20-30 years has ever fielded 4 all-nba players who they drafted and developed?
