"Sources also said the league's proposal would ban fully guaranteed contracts," he wrote. "All contracts would have limits on the amount of money a player would be guaranteed to receive, and those guarantees would decline during the life of each contract. In other words, a player making, say, $5 million per season over four years would actually be guaranteed less than $5 million in each of those four seasons -- and the amount guaranteed would drop each season. The idea is for teams to be able to get out of undesirable contacts more easily and avoid ugly, Eddy Curry-style buyout talks." Yes, please and thank you. I'd love to see players earn their contracts during their contracts, instead of the year before they are awarded them.
