you dont understand how the cap work do you?
Oh I do.....
We're at 99 mil if Enes, KOQ, and Ron opt in, if they opt out we are at 72 Mil. If the Knicks waive them we're at 81 Mil since (excuse my rounding to easier number) 3/18 = 6, 3/4 = 1.5X2 = 3, 6+3 = 9. The Cap is reportedly going to be 101 mil. Meaning even if the knicks waived everyone they would be at around 20 mil in FA money in 2018. I am almost 100% sure KOQ opts out and on the low Kanter is at least looking into it. Also I'll be honest, one of the best parts of trading Melo for Kanter was that melo made way to much money to even contemplate waiving even an option, but I digress......
Funny story I think they should trade Lee for a similar amount bad contract (and a pick) in order to waive it along with noah for 2019. That should open up enough (along with letting Mudiay walk) to pick up a Marquee FA before signing back KP and potentially Burke.
That only real hitch is seeing KOQ go, but KP after this injury should be playing more center like how Duncan played center for the Spurs and KOQ is going to get paid.
