    How Does LTIR Work?

    can someone explain to me how the LTIR works re the salary cap.

    seems unfair that you have 10 teams effectively over the cap employing this strategy. is this in the purest sense of the salary cap or does it smell more like a way to circumvent it.

    It is both lol.

    It's good in the sense that it prevents teams from being punished much if they have a player with a serious injury (and helps the player too, a bit). But teams definitely use it for cap circumvention, no doubt about it.
