The extra 1.5 mil cap hit isn't enough incentive for a player that at best is only worth 1 or 2 mil, assuming he can even play at this level any more. Teams would be much better off trading for Tim Thomas. 5 mil cap hit (because of 35+ clause), but no salary since he retired. I wouldn't be suprised to see that trade go through as soon as the ink is dry on the CBA.
Edit: Actually, I just looked. The cap floor for this season is 44 mil. Every team is above that, even with bonuses no longer counting toward the floor. So even Tim Thomas probably isn't going anywhere unless boston is willing to give up something to free up that cap space.
