If I understand this correctly, a team with $2M in cap space can sign an elite player to $2M, but throw in $4-5M in easily obtainable bonuses. So his cap hit is only $2M, but in reality he's making $6 or $7M? Or do I have this wrong?
I thought there was a limit to bonuses anyway?

This is the old CBA (I believe), but I don't think the bonus rules have changed with the new one.
