Consider the bonus you pay to a player as paid up front, but then spread evenly against the cap (along with the escalating salary each year).

If you cut a player...
If you trade a player...
If the player retires...
All the remaining cap then counts as a penalty for the next year.

I believe remaining bonus is also supposed to count against your next year when you "renegotiate" a current contract. So, for example, if you renegotiate a final year HUGE cap contract into a multi-year, but lower certainly in the first year, cap contract to make room, you will have the remaining bonus in the first contract as a penalty the next season.
And, of course, the first year of the contract you negotiate (if it has a bonus) will also count.

I will stand corrected if I made any errors...
actually, the remaining bonus is built into the new contract and takes effect that season. thats why people have replied with advice to renegotiate a guy down to one season, which has you pay out the remainder of the bonus immediately. if you renegotiate it to a multi-year the same thing happens, but the new contract's 1st year bonus payout gets added in.

so you got a guy with 20 mil worth of bonus left and renegotiate him to a new 3 year deal with a 12 mil bonus, as soon as you confirm that new contract your cap hit for that season will increase by 24mil for that player (20 mil remaining bonus + 4 mil (over 3 seasons) new bonus money).
