Cap and budget are important but if you have cash you can take hits when cutting players.
This is my experience at least.
I appreciate the answer. I probably am going to cut the player in question, that's not an issue. I think I have more than 2x the amount of money needed to do so. My concern about the budget is, right now, I can not make any offers to any player currently on my team. Not being able to offer the 2 FA players contracts, I can accept because of the budget issue for next year. I would be straight adding expenses to the team for the following year(s). However, if I try to offer any of the 3 arbitration eligible players a new contract starting next season. The owner rejects the offer based on being over budget.This is the case no matter how low I go with the offer. If/when I release the player in question, I will still be over budget. That's why I asked about would the budget go down.
