If the new TV deal pushes the cap to $80 million, AD's new deal would start $24 million. If Asik is getting $12 and Jrue and Tyreke are the only other players on the books, you'd have $22 million to resign Anderson, a starting SF and fill out the bench. In some ways that feels like a step back if ...
