An amortized bonus is never owed it is charged to Team Salary on a prorata basis, as it was already paid.Originally Posted by Divine
If Howard is released next year or traded there is a $1 million gross cap savings. Look at the computation where I made a mistake in base salary and add a million to the base salary.
A contract restructure reduces current Team Salary by moving the cap charge to the future. A salary reduction and/or an agreement to forgo a roster bonus reduces Team Salary.
