If they do this trade with Houston, then another player will likely be coming off of the Wizards books.
Butler + Haywood = roughly $ 16 mill
TMac = $23 mill
So I suspect that the Wiz will try to offload DeShawn Stevenson as well.
If the Wiz dump Butler, Stevenson and Haywood, then they most certainly are going to dump Jamison.
With Butler, Jamison, Stevenson, and Haywood off the books, the Wiz would have less than $30 million in committed salary for next season. And if they voided Gilbert's contract, they'd have less than $10 million in committed contracts (but they could still make Foye a qualifying offer worth approx $5 mill).
Needless to say, the Wiz could have a drastically altered lineup next season. If they cut all these players loose, I doubt they stand a good chance of attracting a big name free agent. If they do all this wheeling and dealing, the Wiz will probably go cheap for a couple of years and try to stock pile cheap, young talent.
