To be precise, assuming we cut TH, Salmons, and Daye, and get the 20th overall pick, and trade Novak and Fields for expirings, and re-sign Lowry for 10M per year and Patterson for 5M per year (more realistic estimates in my opinion), we would have 12.2M in cap space.
And again I reiterate that there's no way that happens without losing draft picks, which should not even be considered an option.
