Below cap, no. Below luxury tax? Yes.

Right now it seems the MLE is off-limits. The only option they have is involving sign and trades and vet minimum. They really need to try and work a sign and trade for Marion.

Not much...At least thats what the market is saying right now no one wants him.
It cost Toronto Jermaine O'Neal, so I'm thinking they could get someone on that level? Maybe they could work and double S&T with Cleveland and land a guy like Varejao? Just speculating.

They would not be able to sign Hedo if they they weren't under cap. Yes and no. A team at the cap limit or beyond can always re-sign their own guys if they have bird rights(Larry Bird Exception).

Delfino qualifies, Pops does not.

Escalating contracts and the fact that they were well over cap.

All is accounted for. Don't forget they still have that $3M in cash they can offer in a trade.
