    Don't confuse the Disabled Player exception with the salary cap relief teams sometimes receive after losing a player to a career-ending injury or death (see question number 63). The Disabled Player exception allows a team to acquire a replacement player. The salary cap relief removes a contract from the team's books.
    DPE =/= salary cap relief. That paragraph is outlining the difference.

    I'd rather make a peripheral trade like Hayes for Mahimni than try to land west. I love the way he plays, but it's not that much of an upgrade over what Amir and PP bring.

    West is a nice player but he would be a short term fix to a situation which isn't even broken. I clearly don't want a 34yo PF who posted his career lowest shooting % from the mid range last season.
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    Hmm.. I'm interpreting it the same way that Jeff Zillgitt from USA today is:

    I always thought you could get cap relief.

    Nope. Can't.

    Oh, and Zillgitt in no way suggests that they get actual cap relief - he is just misusing the phrase. They get an exception to sign a player. Read the entire article and at no point does he suggest that George's salary actually comes off the books.
