two related elements included in that set of needs are the salary cap space/luxury tax space available, and the availability of additional space via the contracts that are expiring or could be shed. it would be nice to only consider whether a guy is good or whether he fits with the style of play you are trying to employ, but unfortunately the amount he gets paid and the amount you want to pay somebody else are critically important when you are trying to put a team together. this is the case for taking on any salary, not just franchise guys. i found that knowing about these details is important to trying to understand something about building teams.
