It would serves to tie up other team cap space in future in exchange for dead cap for a season ?
Say trade for an expiring of 10m who then leave 2-3m on the table . So we take the cap hit of 7m and ensure our TPEs doesn’t expire ? Basically paying for assets
Edit : just looked through a few team salary (those in luxury tax or close ) dont really see enough of such players that make it possible.
Also, dead cap hasn't been Presti's MO. He's been willing to take on contracts, but I think they've been somewhat selective in the contracts they take on - even in the past (Kurt Thomas, Delonte West, Wally Szcz.). But, maybe not. Hard to remember back then.
