Ideally they would have moved Dadonov without taking back Weber but the cost was probably far too high. Before the Weber trade they had a cap hit of 82.3M so only 200K under the cap. Dadonov has a 5M contract. They moved out Dadonov and took back Weber's 7.9M. So they now have a cap of 85.2M (82.3 - 5 + 7.9) and are 2.7M above the 82.5M cap - as shown now on CapFriendly. 85.2M - Weber's 7.9M is 77.3M which is 5M below the 82.3M they were at before moving Dadonov. Weber counts against the cap and only LTIR contracts can exceed 82.5M. With Weber on LTIR they can go up as high as 82.5M + 7.9M = 90.4M (if they manage to get the full relief). Their regular roster still has to be under 82.5M. Adding Weber doesn't create cap space but moving Dadonov did clear 5M. They might not get the full 5M because they still need to be able to build a roster to get the full relief, they won't be able to accrue cap space. It's not ideal but that was the cost to pay to move out Dadonov's contract. So in essence, for their situation, moving Dadonov and then adding Weber has given them the ability to add another player in place of Dadonov.
