Under this CBA you allowed to use MLE once a year.

MLE is around $5.5 mil (I'm not sure) and it allows you to exceed the cap.

For example:
You are 1 million over the cap and you want to sign a player for a 4 million dollars.In normal terms you couldn't be able to do that but you can use MLE to sign that guy and put your team even more over the cap.
