face it. winning does breed winning. it does so by attracting players. prime example, spurs.
you are (probably) wrong.

assuming you want to keep amir, lowry, JV and Ross, all 4 will need to get paid. We could have some cap space this summer if we let lowry, salmons and patterson walk. Next summer we have to resign amir.

IF we don't sign any more long term contracts, we may have about 14M in cap space in 2016, assuming only JV, Ross, Kyle, Amir, Demar and the 3-4 players drafted in the next two drafts remain our our roster. Enough for a good, non-all star level contract.
