Not true. Draft picks won't make a penny until a new CBA is signed because team's won't be allowed to sign them, period.

There is zero chance that the new agreement will extend the "old rookie payscale". Literally neither side involved in the negotiations right now want to keep it, so it's safe to say a new, significantly lower rookie cap will be part of the new CBA. There's really no way around it.
