Salary Cap Trades Aren't Ever Tied to a Player Right?

Sorrry for what may be a stupid question. I think I already know the answer, but want to confirm.

When somebody trades a player and salary cap space in the same trade they’re never tied together right? Like if somebody gives me Johnny Thirdbase and $20 dollar cap space in a trade then I drop Johnny Thirdbase later I still have the cap space right?

That is correct. The two are entirely independent.
