Because, when he restructured last year, they converted a portion of is 2011 salary into signing bonus which he gets paid up front but gets spread out over the remainder of his contract in regards to the cap. So portions of this years 20 million cap hit is actually money he has already received as signing bonus that is being charged to this year. He is not actually receiving 20 mil this year. But he does account for 20 mil of the salary cap.
