There will be no free agent money for the Spurs. Let it go. They will start the off season above the salary cap (~$58M) and will finish the off season above the salary cap, but likely below the luxury tax.
That's not exactly correct. If the spurs renounce Manu, they can still resign him but they wouldn't have access to the bird exception. Basically, they could only use any salary cap space they have.

Splitter does get a qualifying offer because he is comming off a rookie contract. He should actually qualify at a higher number than hoops hype shows because he will be considered a starter.
