Players do want to play for a title contender like Miami and make take a small discount to go there, but you really won't have multiple guys who can otherwise make $7 million or $10 million a year choosing to play in Miami for $1 million to $3 million. Also, guys who do take such a discount are generally older and may well experience a significant dropoff even from their 2011-12 level of play. The "ringchaser " effect is probably overstated. Guys still care about other things, like money, minutes, etc.
