I mean I'm all for go all in chasing star players but the problem is ... Tobi is not the "star" we are talking about ... if he wants max let those mediocre team make it and he'll be a decent 2nd choice for a non-playoff team.
That's not how it works. Not signing Harris is worth $22 million in cap space, regardless of what you sign him for. Also means you can't go over the cap to sign Redick or Scott or use the MLE
Harris + Redick + Scott +MLE > $22 million in cap space + room exception
JJ Redick would certainly cost a lot less than his cap hold so you may have like $30 million cap space with resigning Redick first . Losing MLE hurts a little bit but you could get three solid rotation guys with the money you retain Tobi so it won't be that matters.
You're pretty far off on your cap projections. You'd have 29.2M in cap space if you renounced everyone but Butler. So it would be more like 20M after re-signing JJ.
