The extra years lowered the cap hit, the movement clause might have as well, but it's also likely that he wanted one because everyone gets traded.

I'm not usually a fan of longer contracts for older players, but the cap hit is definitely low enough to make this a good deal. I would have been fine paying more in terms of cap dollars to not have the contract hamper the team in 4 years. I don't think that will be the case here though unless the cap starts shrinking.
