http://www.hoopsworld.com/Story.asp?story_id=14825seems they will be short of getting wade and thats if they renounce a couple players including tyrus who i doubt they do and if they trade him they will probably bring in a equal contract. i think that trade for t-mac is a must because of his contract. even then i doubt wade leaves miami though
they could just do a sign and trade.

This was a good article because it mentioned "cap holds". Cap holds are confusing and hard to understand, but people tend to forget about cap holds when calculating a team's salary cap. People also tend to forget to include money a team would have to spend to sign their first round draft pick, assuming they have one.
