We Need To Move Some Salary Still for Dwight

For 2012.

If Dwight makes it to free agency, we do have enough money to offer him a Max contract.. if we renounce Lopez.

Otherwise I think we are about $8m over where we need to be. Farmar and Shawne W. both have player options for next year, and while Farmar has hinted he could opt out to start somewhere (maybe back in Israel), we can't assume he will. We also can't assume Shawne will either, considered how awful he has looked this year.

That said we have the following contracts in 2012 we could move:

Farmar

Shawne W.

Petro

Morrow

D.James

We could stretch exception Petro which would saves us $1.75m, We can also decline the option on D.James. That would leave us with about $41.5m in committed salary.. not including our pick or roster holds. If you add about $2.5m for our pick and about $2m in roster holds (to get to the 12 man limit), we're closer to $46m. In order to sign Dwight we need about $40m in committed salary on the books to fit in the $17.5m he can make here.

Thus, at minimum we need to clear about $5-6m is salary if we declined James and stretched Petro.

A rough breakdown:

Deron Williams - $17,500,000

Anthony Morrow - $4,000,000

Jordan Farmar - $4,250,000

Johan Petro - $1,750,000

Brook Lopez - $9,200,000

Damion James - $0

Shawne W. - $3,200,000

Brooks - $1,200,000

Jordan W.- $500,000

#1 - $2,500,000

Holds - $2,000,000

Total salaries: $46,100,000

BTW...Does anyone know by when Farmar and Petro need to decide if they are picking up their options?
