You are correct...

This past summer, Redden's cap hit was slightly MORE than 10% of the salary cap, so it hurt us a bit in terms of summer spending... However, it's speculated that the cap will rise by as much a $3mil for next year due to the league doing well with revenue/profit, so his contract will likely not infringe on our normal cap spending.
