A team like Atlanta could absorb his entire contract without sending anything back, if that's what was desired. Would leave you with ~$25.5M under the cap, which lets you re-sign Tyreke and add another contributor.
We are already over the cap though. If we do this trade and then resign Evans we wouldn't have much left over. Add in the fact that we don't attract FA and we are looking at a 4-5mil player using the room exception that won't move the needle much. Or we could just use the MLE on Evans and have the #4 pick instead of a 4-5mil guy in FA. It just makes me think that Memphis is listening to offers for 4/Parsons for a good player as opposed to as a pure salary dump.
Faried, Chandler, #14, one of Lyles/Beasley/Juancho/Lydon
You are then able to have a team of Conley, Evans, Chandler, Faried, Gasol, that is a playoff team even in the west, and you get #14 and 6th man in Lyley/Juancho for example...
