Smaller contracts for free agents this summer

This may finally be the year that GMs refuse to pay big money to above average players who ultimately make little to no difference in the win column. Guys like Monta Ellis, OJ Mayo, JR Smith, Darren Collison, etc are in for a rude awakening because most of the 8 or so teams that can win a title either have no cap space, no minutes for them, or no deserve to add selfish players to the mix. Also the rebuilding teams are all in no rush to be good next year because of the 2014 draft class coming up. Add to that the free agents available next summer and it's a perfect recipe for teams making a stand and not over paying.

It has more to do with the C.B.A. and luxury tax

Teams don't want to pay double on the luxury tax. Within 2 years the players will be cursing the agreement they signed. Too many players will be forced to take minimum deals after "Rose Rule" guys and max deals get their money. 75% of the league will be on minimums.
