You missed the point - we may have offered more than NY, but we didn't offer a contract with a $7.8m/yr cap hit. If we had, he'd likely be a King (that's be $10m MORE than what he signed with NY for).

The point is that DL wouldn't take a contract with that cap hit when it DIDN'T cost him additional assets.
