Exactly.

Since Barker is under 26, I believe they only need to pay him 1/3 of the remainder of the contract, so 1.08mil. They would have some sort of cap hit for the next 2 years, but I doubt they care considering they aren't legit contenders.

Personally, I'd consider taking Barker on if he cost me somewhere around the 1mil mark.
