A Possible Albeit Sacrilegious Offseason Scenario

Tony Parker: $12,500,000 ($3,500,000 guaranteed)

Tim Duncan: $10,000,000

Tiago Splitter: $9,250,000

Manu Ginobili: $7,000,000

Danny Green: $4,025,000

Kawhi Leonard: $2,894,059

Marco Belinelli: $2,873,750

Cory Joseph: $2,023,261

Jeff Ayres: $1,828,750

Austin Daye: $1,063,384 ($250,000 guaranteed)

Aron Baynes: **$1,115,243**

Matt Bonner: **$7,495,500**

Patty Mills: **$2,154,505**

Boris Diaw: **$8,934,750**

**Cap holds**

Excluding cap holds and non-guaranteed money, the Spurs total salary for 2014-2015 is around $43,6MM. The estimated salary cap for next season is $63MM. The $43.6MM in salary is for eight players. Patty's cap hold is small so add that to their salary and it's close to $46MM for nine players. Renounce all the other free agents, including Diaw. The Spurs would then need to add roughly $2MM for roster cap holds which puts them around $15MM below the salary cap. Sign LeBron James using the remaining salary cap. Sign Mills using his bird rights (~$4-5MM/yr). Sign Diaw using the MLE. Sign a couple players for the minimum using the bi-annual exception. Sign first rounder for around $1MM. That's a roster of fourteen people. Here it is in tabular form:

LeBron James: $15,000,000

Tim Duncan: $10,000,000

Tiago Splitter: $9,250,000

Manu Ginobili: $7,000,000

Boris Diaw: ~$5,300,000

Patty Mills: ~$4,500,000

Danny Green: $4,025,000

Kawhi Leonard: $2,894,059

Marco Belinelli: $2,873,750

Cory Joseph: $2,023,261

Jeff Ayres: $1,828,750

Bi-Annual Exception Players: ~$2,000,000

First Round Draft Pick: ~$1,000,000

All of this adds up to a very respectable and manageable total salary of around $68,000,000, well below the $77MM luxury tax threshold.

The rotations could be as follows:

PG - Cory Joseph; SG - Danny Green; SF - Kawhi Leonard; PF - LeBron James; C - Tim Duncan

Bench: PG - Patty Mills; SG - Manu Ginobili; SF - Marco Belinelli; PF - Boris Diaw; C - Tiago Splitter
