It's not just $212k. When these discussions take place, everyone always pencils in Doughty with a max entry level contract of $3.8m. My point is that $2m of that cap hit consists of Individual "B" Bonuses and, as such, are limited in their scope by the definitions enumerated in the CBA. If he doesn't reach *any* of his "B" Bonuses, which is entirely possible as the bar is set pretty high for most of them, then his cap hit for the year would end up as a maximum of $1.8m. The same goes for any other rookies with similar bonus-laden contracts.
I just bring this up because $2m+ changes the math on the calculations that I see flying around all the time. Some kind of significant free agent signing seems prudent.
