Based on the example above if we sign Dumerville in 2013 and then cut him after a year we would be charged an 8 million cap hit (dead money) in 2014 for a player that isn't even on the team anymore. Risky but for a player like Dumerville I would take my chances.
Math makes my head hurt, please stop! lol
OK, how do incentive laden contracts (like the one offered to Harrison) work with the cap? It cannot count against this year's cap because you have no idea if the player will meet the incentives. I assume it gets pushed to the next season because it seems like you could really screw with the system otherwise (give veteran minimum and offer $4 million for playing a single game as the "incentive").
its been suggested that doom may sign a one year deal to a contending team playing a 34 for around 5-6 million in order to restore his value and cash in next season.
couldnt be scripted better lol
Essentialy LTBE is applied to the cap in the year of the contract. NLTBE incentives are applied to the following season if they were reached.
LTBE incentives are generally performance indicators that the team or player had reached in the previous season
here's the CBA... have fun:
