Rudy Gay $17,888,931
DeMar DeRozan $9,500,000
Amir Johnson $6,500,000
Landry Fields $6,250,000
Kyle Lowry $6,210,000
Linas Kleiza $4,600,000
Marcus Camby $4,383,773
Steve Novak $3,750,000
Jonas Valanciunas $3,526,440
Aaron Gray $2,690,875
Terrence Ross $2,678,640
Quentin Richardson $884,293 (probably waived)
Quincy Acy $788,872

Team Totals $69,651,824

Cap: 58.5M (projected)
Tax: 71.6M (projected)
Apron: 75.6M (projected)

That leaves a potential amnesty of Kleiza putting the Raps at 65.1M committed - 6.5 clear of the tax, with loads of room to use the full MLE (5.15 M) and still be able to sign some vet bodies. Team even has the biannual 2M exception.
Dude, it's still not enough to be a true contender or game changer of any sort in FA. 6.5 clear of the tax is not that much. I really don't want to see MU use the little caproom (well room beneath the tax) and those few exceptions) hurt the team financially, especially when in 2014-2015 as is there is no starting PG on the team.
