Found February 25, 2012 on Timberwolves Central:
What kind of cap space could we get to this summer? If we amnesty Darko, buyout Webster and Miller, and renounce Beasley, Randolph and Tolliver where are we? Kevin Love 12,922,250 Derrick Williams 4,809,840 Nikola Pekovic 4,837,200 Jose Barea 4,493,500 Wesley Johnson 4,285,560 Luke Ridnour 4,000,000 Ricky Rubio 3,741,120 Wayne Ellington 2,083,042 Malcolm Lee 762,195 Martell Webster 600,000 (buyout) Brad Miller 848,000 (buyout) Total $43,382,707 Add in 3 minimum cap holds and we're at about $44 million. The cap is approx. $58 million this about $14 million in cap space? Is that correct? I think I'm missing the cap hold for the first rounder that we'd get from Memphis... Lots of RFAs that would be interesting with the Wolves. Would you make a huge offer to Batum? Would Portland match?

Rubio stands out during Rising Stars game
