I'll break it down.. This is if we have the cap hold for Davis' contract
12 guys on the Roster... Cut Jabari Brown.
We are $900K off of a full max to LaMarcus Aldridge. Could get to within $95K by cutting Sacre, and holding off on signing Anthony Brown who has a non guaranteed contract, and considering him a roster hold.
Then you take Ed Davis, Nick Young, Ryan Kelly & Tarik Black + a 2nd Rounder to the Blazers for Robin Lopez at $14mil / year.
You have 7 people on the roster...
Kobe, Aldridge, Lopez, Russell, Randle, Clarkson, Nance
Then you can sign Anthony Brown to his deal. Then Robert Upshaw. That gives you 9.
After that you have the room exception and vet minimum to get the other 3 players.
