Shifting of Power

from Darren Eliot of Sports Illustrated,
It was just a date on the calendar -- August 1. A mere 48 hours after the amateur draft came free agency under the new collective bargaining agreement. Everyone knew that would be a free agent free-for-all, but no one was quite sure how quickly the market would be set with an unprecedented array of marquee names available. What is the case universally -- now and for the balance of the CBA -- is an all-encompassing need for teams to constantly revamp their rosters with the salary cap in mind. An addition of an asset will have an immediate effect on payroll as well as long-term ramifications.
