[quote=b1gdon;1298161]You know, I read Larry Coons FAQ a little further and he lists basketball related income projections for the next 8 years (see item 18). Based on those numbers, I think the new salary cap will be $63M. In other words forget that $70M number, no matter what, the Spurs will be capped out...unless they completely renounce Manu.[/QUOTE]
If a free agent signs elsewhere, then his hold is immediately removed. But that only really helps with Manu's number. He is the only FA likely to sign for significantly less.
