No. Prongers contract "counts" during the summer. However, current CBA has a "you can outspend cap by 10% in the offseason" clause. So if cap is 70 mil, we could spend up to 77 in the offseason, but must have that trimmed to cap by seasons start. So really...prongers deal just eats most of this "bonus" during the offseason.
When the season begins and he is placed on LTIR we are able to exceed the cap by the amount of his cap hit.
