Joe Smith, Najera, Boykins all, depending on how they work their contracts are expiring.

6.8+4.6+3.0 = 14.4 million

Which is 2.8 million short of AI, and works (easily actually) under the current CBA.

Don't know why they'd go for anything like that, but there is an answer.

Interesting times, that's for sure...

But here's a what-if for you:
Starting lineup, 2007:
AI
JR
Melo
K-Mart
Nene
That might be it later in the season, but I honestly don't see K-mart being anything more than MAYBE a figure head starter (perhaps technically starting, but not gettin the majority of the minutes) next year.

He'll be coming off one year of rehab on a second microfractured knee. It took a guy half a decade younger more than a year to get back into form from just one such surgery.

Perhaps by midseason he'll be ready to hang with West Power Forwards, but if the FO has learned anything from this debacle is to make sure your players are fit to play (Karl's personal idiosyncracies notwithstanding).
