This seems like a finer point of cap manipulation and I don't really understand it. This is how CapFriendly explains it............. The ACSL will always be less than or (in the optimal scenario) equal to the league upper limit. The closer the ACSL is to the league upper limit, the greater the team will be able to exceed the upper limit. How is LTIR Relief calculated? LTIR relief comes in the form of two values: a salary relief pool, and a performance bonus relief pool. These pools are determined the day the player is placed on LTIR. The salary relief pool is the player’s averaged salary excluding performance bonuses (their cap hit value). The performance bonus relief is the player’s total performance bonuses for this season (games played, A and B bonuses), regardless of if they are still achievable.What if the team already has a player on LTIR? The teams ACSL remains the same, and their salary relief pool increases by the player’s cap hit, and the performance bonus relief pool increases by the player’s performance bonuses. How does a team use the base salary and performance bonus relief pools? As explained above, two pools are created when a player is placed on LTIR, a salary pool, and a performance bonus pool. If recalling a player would result in the team exceeding the ACSL, the team must have enough relief in the necessary pools. Only the players achievable performance bonuses are considered when they are recalled, for example, if a player has an 82 games played performance bonus of $500,000, and it is impossible for them to achieve those 82 games, the $500,000 performance bonus is no longer considered. https://www.capfriendly.com/ltir-faq#ltir-relief Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
