explain please.


i automatically thought, wrongly apparently, that a buyout meant we would pay him his whole salary that was owed to him.
Sometimes it's complicated, but Dumont's case is simple.

His cap hit is $4M with 1 year left

2/3's of $4M = 2.6666

Spread that out over double the remaining years left gives us 1.3333 over 2 years

There's a good explanation on capgeek in their faqs
