Kobe after a few seasons will retire and his money will also come off the books. We're just gonna have to let some people go.
Kobe and Bynum already has a combined 45 mil salary in the coming season. Add World Peace' 7 Mil and Blake's 4 mil and Mcbobs 3 mil, thats about 59 Mil on just 5 players which I think would be over the threshold. Even if you amnestied Artest, you still need 8 more players, and what are the chances of getting good players playing for vet minimum contracts?
How can you still go under the cap?
