Why unlikely?? You expect him to re-sign there?? ATL doesn't have anybody else, so they can throw ridiculous money at him but for some reason I have little faith in him staying there.

Also, Gainey has always tried to keep himself a margin of around 2M during the season in case certain needs pop up and trades are required. So I'm pretty sure he'll save some cap space.
