They haven't signed him to anything yet - that's what July 11th is for. On that day, they could agree to a contract with Bayless starting at roughly his QO amount - thus freeing up the same amount of cap space. The one benefit of the moratorium period is that GM's have a few days to get their ducks in a row and make all those deals they agree to work financially.
