Heat had the mini mid level exception as opposed to the full mid level exception. It's how a team over the cap fills out it's roster.

Boston offered a much higher contract since they were under the cap thanks to several expiring contracts. Of course Boston burned that bridge with Ray Allen when they tried trading him 50 times over the past two years.

Ohhh, i got it slightly wrong. Teams can use the mid level exception if they are over the cap, but not in luxury tax territory.
