Post Salary cap figures

According to the Daily Herald, we have $56.4 million committed to 11 players for this season. The luxury tax threshold is $67.9 million, so we have $11.5 million free. We also have $42 million committed to players next year, not including Gordon and Deng, who will be FA's next summer. Say we sign one of the power forwards we are interested in to a 2 or 3 year contract for the MLE, about $5 million/year. That means that next summer, when it comes time to extend our own players, and also look into a very deep FA class, we will have a payroll of about $47 million. The luxury tax threshold should go up to $69 or $70 million, so we will have about $22 million in cap space. How much should we pay Deng, and will we resign Gordon, sign and trade him, or just let him go? Or should we go for a more marquee FA this summer and cost ourselves a chance at a good one next summer?

Are these figures taking in account signing draft picks?

Give Deng a nice paycheck but I say we would want to resign Gordon as well. But then again this is thinking way to much into the future for me - it would depend on a number of things. Who else is a FA, who had good seasons, who had bad seasons, who wants to come to Chicago, who wants out, ect ect.

I'm pretty sure that's what the article said. I don't know if we have officially signed them, but we know that Noah will probably get about $2.5 million in his first year since Horford (#3) got a little over $3 million and Acie Law (#11) got $1.8 million. Gray and Curry won't count much against the cap.
