If he were to sign and we have a ton of cap space in his first year, could we give him like 20 million in year one, which would all go against the cap that year and keep him at a much lower salary for the rest of the contract? Is that how the new CBA works?
Cap hit is the total amount of the contract divided by the number of years. Actual dollars each year is irrelevant for purpose of cap hit.

But there was rules that limit the variance of the dollar amount from year to year. So you can't pay a guy $20M one year and $5M the next.

Finally, there is a limit to what percentage of the upper cap any one player can make in that year (cap hit or actual dollars). I think it's still 20%?
