He would get a 12 million signing bonus and 2 million salary, then next year get the same signing bonus. So he would make around 26 million in one calender year, 30 million is out of the question. It would be against the CBA rules they have in place. Remember he needs to have a base salary for the year, his salary just can't all be the signing bonus.
Right, but for a one-year offer sheet, you couldn't include the second bonus. Right? He'd get $12 + $2 million, and then become UFA on July 1--unless an extension was negotiated, in which case, he could then receive another bonus.

To get the $26 million over 366 days, it needs to be at least a 2-year contract.
