Was just pondering this now. I don't know if it is feasible or not. I don't even know if I would suggest this. But it is something to think about. Keep all the current budget rules. And then add the ability for teams to buy allocation money. Teams would pay a tax on any allocation money they buy. The "tax" gets put into the allocation pool for all teams. This could be spread out over three years to help with budget planning for the league and teams. Or not. There would be a cap on how much allocation money teams can purchase. That could be 500k, 1 million or 10 million(very unlikely). The tax could increase as you spend, or stay the same. It would allow teams who have some more money to spend to do so. It should help improve teams across the board rather than just help bring in high priced DPs. Although it could help bring in more low priced DPs who teams are then able to remove the DP tag from with allocation money.
