No, that's not what's being asked for.
With the cap maximum being 70.2 million the maximum salary for a single year is 20% of that number so roughly 14 million. Of that 14 million in salary 12 million of it is being asked for as a bonus with only 2 million in base salary for year 1 and 2.
That gives the player a massive upfront payday in year 1 and a guaranteed 12 million in year 2 even if there's a lockout since the bonus isn't impacted by if there's a season or not.
