I agree that cap-circ. deals were kind of BS but in this case it wouldn't matter; they would probably have to amnesty him anyway.

He would have gotten he's money (around 50 mil.) some other way. 6x8 or 7x7. That would still be 4 or 5 years after this season and 3 or 4 after next season; way too much at that cap hit if he doesn't bounce back.
