There are only so many wins to go around, and so much money for the league to spend. If a player is worth so many wins (ie evaluation of his skillset and production and impact), and we know how much total it costs for the league to run and how many total wins there are available, that players gets a certain amount of money based on that.

Now if the cap goes up, the amount of money available goes up, and the player is still worth the same slice of the player pie based on his wins-value. So the monetary value of those wins goes up, and so does the expected salary.

This is all very straightforward stuff. I don't know how to better explain it.
