It would be more about the way you handle your money than how much youn have. Say Team A has a player thats to make the max aloud(15 mill just for the sake of it). Then the General manager clears up 15 mill from salary from his team so he cn sign that player. But whats the point of doing this if out of nowhere Team B offers up 20.
I also think if you have league max you should also have a league min.
A contract limit? Say no player can make above $15.
Player A is a stud. He's 27, no injury history, a great teammate, incredible player, etc... He earns the maximum. Nicely done.
Player B is better. Pure and Simple. Better offense, defense, age, health, even tells better jokes in the locker room. In fact, there isnt anything player A does better. Yet player B makes the same amount? Thats not too fair for the team that is paying player A, nor is it fair to player B.
Let the players earn what going market rates are. Anything other than that will pit one $15 player against a better $15 player, thus making the system unrealistic. If my $15 is worth $15, but your $15 is worth $30, do you want to trade me?
