Here's a question: we all know you can go over the cap by 10% in the off-season, but I would assume that a franchise would be going over next season's cap as of July 1st. Does anyone know for sure? If my understanding is correct, the Hawks will have roughly 10 million dollars in raises to Kane/Towes to factor in. So, in essence, the financials outlined on the previous page (3.1 in space for qualifying offers) might be overly optimistic.

I expect the Hawks to move two or three roster players (money is on Versteeg, Ladd, and Sopel) before the draft is over.
