Cap hit isn't what matters. It's real dollars and Jones is due a lot more in real dollars then Komisarek is.

Everybody knows Komisarek isn't worth his cap hit of 4.5 next year. But the number your team needs to be concerned with is the 3.5 in real dollars he's due compared to the 3 years at 4 per (12 million) in real dollars Jones is due that he isn't close to being worth.
