Pyatt is making $1.65M in salary. Another team is not claiming him. Nearly $900,000 for the rest of the season. $863,076.
Isn't it the other way around? 925,000 doesn't count, so you prorate that to see how much you save (483,846). Still, it barely makes a difference.

Sather gets his obligatory annual goon?

I thought they only get the cap hit for the sum that is above $925.000 (I E $625.000 prorated = $298,077). Or is this incorrect??
Yes and no. They had his full 1550000 for 93/195 days. They're going to have 625000 for 102/195. So basically 1066154, or 483845 saved.
