I don't think its so much the league protecting the teams, more so giving the lower market teams a fair/better shot at keeping its own players with the incentive of that extra year.
Thanks for the update.
On a separate note:
Not to start a referendum on the validity of the contract limitations. However the more I think about it the less I like the idea of the league controlling contract length. Now I get the reasoning behind it, but the league already has a rule about circumventing the cap along with a salary cap. Is it really the commissioners job to protect teams from stupid longterm deals?
