Signing bonus is divided over the first 5 years of the contract. Base salary does not, so you can have a big contract but a low cap hit in some years.. Next

You can pro-rate it different ways, if you choose to pro-rate.

The signing bonus is always pro-rated over the the length of the contract (though max 5 years)

I may be wrong, but contractually there are several different options that allow that sort of strange flexibility. In some contracts the GM decides to "front load" a contract so they pay less and less after each year....which is the best way to build a team if your patient over time. Conversely a contract might be "back loaded" so it can be contained below the salary cap for that season. The down side to this is, it just pretty much delays the inevitable and decreases cap flexibility over a period of time. Our time is up. Hurney was fired pretty much because he back loaded too many contracts with either underachieving players or positional redundancy and a lot of backloaded contracts have escalated simultaneously.

He hasn't backloaded any more than most teams (the recent Stewart contract is an exception), he just paid people too much, be it for their level of skill or for the value of their position.
