They cant cut him after june 1st because he has 18.1 mil guaranteed remaining and 9 mil this year and next would suck when he gets about 7 to play. I would rather pay him in 2015 even if its to rehab.

He doesn't have $18.1 million remaining. He has the prorated portion of his signing bonus, which is $9.2 million, which is why that is the cost to cut him pre-June 1. If we cut him post June 1, we have dead money this season of $2.8 million (and a net cap savings of about $4.5 million), and then $6.4 million next season.

I'm not saying the team wants to take on $6.4 million in dead money next season. I'm just saying if they want to cut Baker post June 1, that is imminently doable. We've carried more dead money than that in worse cap situations before.
