From PFT: JUNE 1 RULE CHANGE
This could make a big difference for the hit induced by releasing Willie (and Starks?), spreading the hit over 2 years.
A league source tells us that the new CBA alters the rule regarding post-June 1 cuts in a manner that helps veteran players.
Well, some veteran players.
Under the new CBA, cuts made after June 1 will still result in the cap hit being spread over two seasons. However, each team will be permitted to release up to two players per year before June 1 and their release ultimately will be ultimately processed as a post-June 1 transaction.
This will allow some veteran players to hit the market in March, when far more money is available for free agents.
However, a team using this device still will carry the player's salary under its total cap number until June 1.
