As an outsider, I would be shocked if it isn't matched. Even if its front-loaded by a ludicrous amount, it shouldn't matter. Worst case, let's say the plan is to trade him a few years down the road if a rebuild is in the cards. Could you imagine the ransom one could get for Weber at an actual salary in the 5.5-6M range? An asset can't get much more valuable than that... If it isn't front-loaded, there is no reason not to match it.

And I don't necessarily buy that Weber doesn't want to be in Nashville. If he truly didn't, he would only sign for 1 year and leave his options open. It's not like the cap hit is outrageous, it's very fair and he has to know the preds have plenty of space to match it.
