If I'm not mistaken, it wasn't a Phoenix issue. It was NO who had Miller, and they were the ones needing to aggregate outgoing TPE from Miller (with Dyson's) to accept the salaries of Warwick and Lopez. Had they not been able to do so, it would have reduced the amount they could offer Lopez by around $1M in 1st year salary, clearly enough to kill the deal.
