Another update with QO's.

Jose Calderon $10,561,982
Andrea Bargnani $10,000,000
Jerryd Bayless: $7,605,700 cap hold ($4,001,917 QO)
Amir Johnson $6,050,000
Linas Kleiza $4,600,000
DeMar DeRozan $3,344,250
Jonas Valanciunas: $2,812,200
James Johnson $2,812,006
Ed Davis $2,207,040
Terrence Ross $2,136,100
Gary Forbes $1,500,000
Sonny Weems $1,059,389 cap hold/QO
Roster slot cap hold (slot 13): $490,180

Total without Bayless: $48,063,327 - 9.9M cap space
Total with Bayless: $55,178,847 - 2.8M cap space

Salary Cap: $58 million
Tax Threshold: $70 million

- Jonas Valanciunas: last year's 5th slot rookie salary
- Note that the cap hold for rookies is their rookie scale salary, but rookies are typically signed to 120% of their rookie scale - as such, it would be best if they are signed after the other free agents. They will likely be "unofficially" signed early, then actually sign the papers later in July.
- Alabi is an UFA free agent, so no cap hold necessary. Technically they could keep his rights, but he'll be signed for the minimum so no need.
- Sonny Weems cap hold is his QO.

Amnesty candidates and resultant cap space (with/without Bayless cap hold):
Jose: 20.5M / 13.4M
Amir: 16.0M / 8.9M
Kleiza: 14.5M / 7.4M

Also note how expensive Bayless' cap hold is. If the team plans to re-sign him to a MLE level or somewhat lower contract, that should be their first move, to free up a couple million dollars in cap space. So you can add the difference between 7.6M and whatever he signs for to all above "with Bayless" numbers if they are smart. Assuming 5 million starting, that's an additional 2.6 million in cap space. Nothing to sneeze at.
