Good take from the trade board:

So, he will be paid $2.5M + 30/82*$1,000,000 = about $2,900,000 in actual money to be paid. Making $2.9M for 30 games is the equivalent of making close to $8M over an 82 game season.

Colorado isn't a cap team, there seems to be an internal budget. Can they afford to pay ROR this much?
