Default Re: Maggette traded for Ben Gordon, 2013 pick

We only added about 2 million to our salary for the next we're looking at around 47-48 million including our pick. We'll easily have around 8 to 10 million before we even hit the cap. With that along with trades we'll worry about need. Tonight is all about BPA.

The year after next including Gordon we'll still have a LOT of space (over 20 million). The trade was an absolute no brainer for us.

Then it's gotta be either Beal or Robinson.
