Whiteside is priority number 1. Bazemore or Barnes if all the other guys are of the table in addition to keeping the pick and call it a offseason. Fill out the rest of the roster with 1 year guys and position yourself for 2017 free agency. Feel like I've written this out 100 times now. Under no circumstances does Derozan need to be in the plan. NONE.
It kind of does, when you factor in that Clarkson's cap hold of $2.725mil is erased, and then becomes around $12mil-15mil according to Tom Ziller. So if you were to only go after Whiteside & Baze.. You essentially used your cap anyway.
Whiteside - $21 mil
Bazemore - $18mil
Clarkson ~ $13.5mil
That's not including Tarik Black. Who won't be getting a bunch of money, but a few mil, nonetheless.
And that's only if we release Nick Young. If we keep Nick Young, it's only $57mil
Unless you go after just Whiteside. Where you're leaving $20+ mil in cap to just the type of moves we've been making the past 3 years... You pretty much should use all the cap space.
