Gerald Wallace is not picking up his option with the Nets.. Should've kept that pick! Theres a significant drop off after the 6th pick

Ouch. That was a stupid deal before this happened, but now it's disasterous. From what I understand, Deron's as good as gone too.

Does Dallas have the cap room to sign Deron and Gerald? I could definitely see that happening

The short answer is yes. They'd have to make a move and/or use their amnesty provision on Haywood or Marion, but they could very easily have enough cash to sign both guys.

They will also need to renounce the rights to guys like Jason Terry, Vince Carter, Jason Kidd, etc... before having any cap room.

Plus Odom's non-fully guaranteed $8.2M number needs to be addressed first. Plus the 17th pick counts as a cap hold against the cap unless traded on draft day.
In fact here is a link with numbers for cap holds for Dallas.

http://www.shamsports.com/content/pages/data/salaries/mavericks.jsp

Terry is $16.737M
Kidd is over $15.181M

It looks like Vince Carter has salaries through 2013-2014 season but are not guaranteed.

With cap holds(over $40.9M) there payroll is over $95.415M

Pistol Pete, dirk, Mikan, Cousy , Havlicek, And Reggie Miller don't agree. Maybe Karl Malone also.
