You can't bank cap space and be using LTIR at the same time. The mere fact that we are banking 4K a day means that we are taking Walker's cap hit without issue.
LTIR hurts the cap actually, people don't realize that. The salary is "replaceable", but the hit is there in full if you are not spending up to the cap.

For example, if you calculated the hits of all our roster players and we were $3mill under, but with Walker and Lappy on LTIR, we are really only banking the difference, or the daily equivalent of 200k per day.
