Several different sources on this, but here's one that's got most of the info.
This makes no sense. $29 mil prorated over 6 years is $4.83 mil per year. Then they say he will be paid $51 mil in the first two years. So that is $22 mil on top of the signing bonus. So $1.97 of that goes on top of the prorated signing bonus to make $6.8 cap this year. That leaves $20.03 plus $4.83 for a $24.86 mil cap hit next year. That doesn't seem like a good structure.
