Let's look again at that 12-men roster we have under contract at the moment:

PG - Calderon (Ukic)
SG - Parker (Adams, Ukic, Graham)
SF - Moon (Kapono, Graham, Bargnani)
PF - Bosh (Bargnani, Humphries)
C - O'Neal (Bargnani, Jawai)

Considering how close they are to the luxury tax territory, that's pretty much it, folks. Sure, they will look hard into moving pieces like Hump or Graham while trying to upgrade one of the wing positions, but that's highly unlikely and they simply cannot take any more salary back in a trade, not even 10% allowed. So, I can see BC waiting for the dust to settle, picking up one of the available vets at PG position on a minimum contract and starting the season with 13 men roster. I doubt Lue will be that guy, though.
