Sounds really complicated, maybe Dan H could help clear this up?

It sounds counter-intuitive. I assumed that by extending the QO to Weems, that would leave us with his cap hold, which counts against the team's total salary.

If we hadn't extended him the qualifying offer, I thought that we would lose his cap hold?

Makes me think that we are more retaining his rights as a piece to add in a trade/ sign and trade, than bringing him back...protecting an asset?
