    Kiya, the point is that Bird rights allow teams to exceed the salary cap. Large Markets are more willing to have higher salaries, so they can take advantage of the new rule.

    On the other hand, something like the new hard-cap system makes it more difficult for teams to exceed the cap and favors small markets.

Do you have any idea what these other possible loopholes are? Honestly, i don't think there are that many (maybe drug testing/fines/social media restrictions) that could possibly come up.
    No, sorry. Literally no clue on these other loopholes.

    Yeah I can see a settlement soon. Like the article says it really only affects the Knicks with Lin and Novak, the NBA shouldn't bust chops for 2 guys and one team.
