We could sign Lowry and GV do it. LBJ has to opt out and be a UFA, then sign and trade with miami and a third team involved and give up Fields, Salmons (extend him to 7 mil), Hayes and likely 3 1st round picks (2015, knicks/nuggest in 16, 2017). That would allow us to exceed the cap. Or TH, Novac, Hayes, Fields is 18 million.
Salmons actually provides us some flexibility right now.
Rest depends on who goes and stays but TH, SN, Vet min.
Would be a scary team. Compete for the championship. Top 10 in offense/defense. I'm dreaming but it woud be a ridiculously great trade for us and payback for the Heat giving us one crap 1st for Bosh.
