LTIR accrual does not begin until the first day of the season even if the player can technically be placed on LTIR earlier. Because of the slight divergence in the "time it hits the account" as it is traditionally explained that the salary cap is like a bank account. You can't cash a check for dollars that you know will be hitting your account, but have yet to actually do so.
I'll try to find the thread where this was explained again. I just found it for someone else a couple weeks age when I was asked.
I remember something about this from years prior, but I don't exactly know the details.
If you could find out some more information that would be helpful to see what the exact dollar amounts we need to "discover" are.
