I wouldn't say the team "painted themselves into a corner" as much as the rules were changed very rapidly. The new CBA was signed last November IIRC and honestly three years is a very short time for the team to cut the amount of payroll it had to while remaining competitive. The organization would have been ran much differently had they known the new luxury tax rules back in the 2008 offseason for example.
