Essentially, we should take in as much productive bad salary players as possible to show Dwill we are trying to compete and will do anything it takes to win.
If I understand the cap restrictions correctly, we can resign Humphries and all our free agents on huge (ex. $12M) 1 yr deals and sign and trade them for overpaid but talented players, since we don't really have alot of flexibility anymore
2) Amar'e Stoudemire - Stat for expirings and picks, take it or leave it
3) David Lee (maybe we can get a pick or a rotation player along with him) - Gld State wants to tank, so they might be willing to dump their best player
5) Hedo Turkoglu - obviously if it helps us get Howard
...and so much more
I think if we can get two out of all the productive overpaid players, we can instantly become a legitimate contender without giving up too much. I'm dreaming of getting David Lee and Joe Johnson for nothing
