problem is that people see it as 14 for signing +14 for the next season (12-13) which is false. he'll get no more than 14 in 12-13, not 28.
And it's not a signing bonus per se, as it is exclusively part of the cap hit for next season, its a provision that was added to the 1 year extention of the CBA in case there would be a work stoppage for 12-13. its a form of garanteed salary, but players still cant get more than the max salary
