The backload of the contract is only how much they take home on their paycheck, for Houston it's not the amount that gets counted against their cap.
They also have a number of expirings and non-guaranteed contracts that they can dump, trade, waive, etc.
They have enough room to get a Max player if they want one.
Funny seeing people's comments about large contracts when they're misinformed.
