This plus 1

Further if you think about it Amir Johnson over paid $7MM comes off the cap the same year if I am not mistaken..

That would be $15M off the books in 2015 or so.

Sets up the team nicely to acquire a very good player...

...which is why it hurts all the more that we didnt go out an draft Drummond.
