Why would it continue to rise? Heck it's going to be going down from the initial projection for the 2014/15 cap.

Actually the idea is more so that this is the last opportunity to buy him out with a compliance under the current CBA. If they feel his play will only continue to decline, they're stuck with a pretty bad contract with 2-3 years left on it down the line (assuming the decline in worse in the coming seasons).

FWIW IMO, they could still move him 2-3 years down the line by retaining some salary and find a taker for him.

That's fine, but that has nothing to do with what I said.
