Given the Fields signing, all my other assumptions were the only possible solutions to the rest of the signings and trades.

Calderon is not a lynch pin for anything except the Gray signing. If Calderon is amnestied, Gray could be signed with cap space. However, since Gray has already agreed to a contract without the Raps committing to clearing any cap space, he has likely agreed to the Room MLE. Not to mention the fact that I've stated several times that all my assumptions were completely valid up until another move was made - amnesty or trade clearing cap space.
Yawn...ruffle ruffle ruffle
