Restructuring is part of the deal. Contracts are made with the understanding that the player will not be paid the giant salaries of the final years. Those numbers are generally just starting points for negotiations.
Guaranteed money is pretty much all that is important. The final numbers & the length of the contract only add flexibility for cap purposes.
