Also makes the player more tradeable due to lowered salary. And of course, it's an incentive to the player for a couple other reasons: Getting the money sooner is more guaranteed money and more interest, so the contract is more lucrative and the player is more interested in signing.
But under the 2005 CBA, if a player retired @ age 35+, the full cap hit goes against the cap, regardless.
