Dooling was waived at the start of the summer because, if done before a certain date, his contract was only guaranteed for $500,000. This happened, and Dooling was thus on the Nets' cap number for that amount this season, which was the amount reflected on the site's salary pages.

That cap hit no longer exists, however, due to the right of set-off that teams have on waived players. After being waived, Dooling signed a two year contract with the Milwaukee Bucks that started at $2,080,000 in the first year. With the right to set-off, New Jersey were able to remove from their cap number an amount equal to half of the difference between the player's new salary and the second year player's minimum. The second year player minimum for the 2010/11 season is $762,195, so the amount New Jersey could set off was $658,902.50 ($2,080,000 - $762,195 / 2). And because this amount is greater than $500,000, the Nets could set-off Dooling's entire cap hit.

Dooling is an athletic point guard, strong defensively and in transition, whose jumpshot is streakier than a naked Tim Thomas but who contributes offensively anyway. Dooling is signed with the Nets through 2010/11; however, only $500,000 of his contract is guaranteed. New Jersey deliberately signed him like that so that they could waive him for 2010 free agency, and now that we're here, that's exactly what they are going to do.
