Man alive, keep missing stuff. Remember the note I made earlier that since Q-Rich signed a multi-year deal, he is not a "vet minimum exception" and as such counts as his full minimum amount rather than the 2-year amount? What I missed in calculating this TPE, is that in trades, he still counts as a minimum deal (just not a 2-year vet minimum deal), and can be excluded from incoming salary.
As such, the TPE is bigger, and much more useful, at around 2.62M (allowing 2.72 M absorbed).
