For cash considerations = even more money than you would've have gotten off the books.

 

Win.

A lot of times when something "makes no sense," the problem is with those who it makes no sense to if it makes logical sense, in general. This does.

 

Why wouldn't you trade Scotty Hopson for cash considerations if you clear his contract while getting some more cash on top of that?

Cash considerations and cap space aren't the same thing.

It doesn't take anymore money of the books then flat out cutting him would have.

It does however give the organization more money which is always a good thing.

What can they do with that "more money"?

Releasing equals cap space

This trade for cash equals same cap space and puts money into owners pockets. Therefore if we were to slightly go over cap, owner had a little extra money to put towards that.

It's still a good trade though. You could either flat out cut him and get nothing for it except for cap space.

Or you could trade him and pick up cash as well as cap space.

So it could, potentially, help the cap situation in the end?
