The owners have consistently proposed measures against teams straying into the luxury tax territory. The Mavs, who the Dallas Morning News reports were hit with $20 million in fines last season, may not be able to re-sign free agents like TChandler under the new CBA: “Free agent Mavericks center Tyson Chandler fears that the new NBA collective bargaining agreement could limit Dallas from re-signing him. ‘With the collective bargaining agreement and some of the things that they’re trying to enforce, it would basically prohibit me from coming back,’ Chandler told KESN-FM FM in Dallas. ‘It would take it out of my hands — and the organization’s — because it would almost be pretty much impossible for me to re-sign. I just think that can be the worst thing that can happen. For years, the Lakers have been able to win championships and re-sign their players and keep them there so they can go out for another title. Now, to put that deal in place after we win ours, I don’t like it one bit.'”
