How to get Melo AND Mirotic this summer

  1. Convince Melo that Chicago is his best option, that he needs to demand to come here (Jo is already working on this)
  2. Convince Knicks they should get something for him, and their cap sheet's best option is to chase KLove, etc in summer 2015
  3. S&T Melo for Boozer + Charlotte Pick (will be ~#13 in 2014) + 2015 Bulls pick (or whatever other picks needed)
    Note: Melo's contract is for $21M in 1st yr, the max allowable to match 125% of Boozer's outgoing contract
  4. Bring over Mirotic for full-MLE, $5.3M (This might be tough. If he won’t sign for this, trade him as part of S&T instead of Char pick)
  5. Fill out roster with 2nd Rd pick, vet minimums (maybe Kirk signs for min?)

2014-2015 Cap Sheet:

$18,862,876 Rose

$2,008,748 Butler

$21,000,000 Carmelo

$8,000,000 Gibson

$12,200,000 Noah

$5,305,000 Mirotic (or substitute other MLE if he won't come over at this salary)

$3,326,235 Dunleavy

$1,472,400 Snell

$816,482 Murphy

$1,100,000 1st Rd Pick (~Pick #21, I suggest a center)

$500,000 2nd Rd pick

$915,243 Vet Minimum #1 (Maybe Hinrich?)

$915,243 Vet Minimum #2

($333,334 Rip Hamilton leftovers from Stretch Provision)

$76,755,561 TOTAL (13 players under contract)

.

This puts Bulls over the Luxury Tax (estimated ~$75M), but under Apron (estimated ~$79M).
