Because of changes in the new CBA, we were already going to be carrying his hit this season at $5.6M. I think we still have $3M or so to play with.
We have $3,991,666 in cap space right now with a 22 man squad (including MDZ & Gilroy plus Drury/Redden buyouts). Bonus cushion is being used (deferrable bonuses of $1,250,000 subtracted). Haley has now been waived and will not count against the cap. Sauers cap hit of $1.250m is also included here.
At the deadline - you can use a prorated factor of 4,125 times the annual available cap space at that time.
PLENTY of $$ available.
