In the CBA it says:

All Player Salary and Bonuses earned in a League
Year by a Player who is in the second or later year
of a multi-year SPC which was signed when the
Player was age 35 or older (as of June 30 prior to
the League Year in which the SPC is to be
effective), but which Player is not on the Club's
Active Roster, Injured Reserve, Injured Non Roster
or Non Roster, and regardless of whether, or where,
the Player is playing
, except to the extent the Player
is playing under his SPC in the minor leagues, in
which case only the Player Salary and Bonuses in
excess of $100,000 shall count towards the
calculation of Averaged Club Salary; plus
I don't think him playing in Russia would get hiom off the cap. It doesn't matter if he actually get's payed (if he retires his cap hit would still count) and/or is suspended, he will count against the cap in any case until he is traded. Even if he is on LTIR (and no suspensions definitely have nothing to do with LTIR and aren't in any way similiar) he would still technically count against the cap, but we would of course be allowed to spend those 1.3M over the cap.

But yeah, I could easily imagine a trade Brasher to some team at the cap floor for futures.
