I don't understand this.
Hoopdata has a detailed salary page, and for the Pacers they mention we have over forty million dollars in cap holds.
What confuses me is that it lists all of these players that are somehow "cap holds" that count against our salary cap unless they are renounced or re-signed.
Easily the biggest listed cap hold is Rik Smits at $18,550,000.
But surely the Pacers have done whatever is necessary to clear that 18.5mm off the cap, so then why is hoopdata still listing him, and the others?
There's no way we could be functioning if all of these cap holds were counting against our total salary, so then why are they even listed?
