Yeah, this is what I've been thinking. They're obviously going for it, so why would they be shedding key players? Then I read that article about the cap and how they might be forced to move some salary.

Though I still don't understand how the league can set this operating cap number of $70.3M or whatever it is, only to make a new CBA deal and have teams scrambling to get under some lower figure.
