I'll go with high-end predictions for the RFAs.
That's $15MM additional, puts us at $62MM. Can you fit Richards with $8MM cap room? Probably, and that's with my high dollar projections for the UFA contracts. Those numbers could all be lower, giving us around $10MM or even more to work with.
Then, when the season starts, Redden's number disappears again (covering us on our 10% summer overage) and Drury likely heads to LTIR, where we can add some or all of his salary into additional signings.
There's enough money for us to re-sign all of our guys and realistically go after Richards.
Thanks for putting it into perspective.
A concise and simple explanation of a possible way to sign Richards.
