Wow, way to miss the point. In no way did i say adding a year at low pay was retarded. I'm saying if you were to do that with no intent of playing the remaining 2 years, you might as well have added 2 low pay years to lower the average cap hit even more. This is if the plan was to put him on LTIR in the last year from the beginning. If the plan was not to play the last year, THEN it's retarded to not have added 2 low pay years like a lot of player's contracts have.
However i don't believe that was part of the plan. I believe the plan is to play out the remaining years of his contract.
