The most likely splash the Cleveland Cavaliers might still make would be one very similar to what they did on Tuesday. Even with adding Marreese Speights, Wayne Ellington, and Josh Selby's pro-rated contracts, the Cavaliers still have cap space to take on salary. The updated Trade Machine at ESPN actually puts the number over $10 million. Teams that find themselves just over the $70.3 million luxury tax threshold could find themselves desperate to rid themselves of a contract or two. For example, the Chicago Bulls have notoriously never paid the luxury tax, despite playing in a huge market and being hugely profitable. That could change this year, as they have to cut about $3.7 million to avoid the status. They could break from their policy this season, but with Derrick Rose still out and with an uncertain timetable, it seems weird to spend so much in a season like this. A very simple trade that works starting on February 15 (a restriction comes off Livingston on that date) of Richard Hamilton for Shaun Livingston and a protected first round pick from Charlotte owed to them would allow Chicago to save about $8 million and avoid repeater penalties for being a luxury tax offender. The details of the protected pick look like this: Charlotte's own 2013 1st round draft pick to Chicago (top-12 protected in the 2013 Draft, top-10 protected in 2014, top-8 protected in 2015 and unprotected in the 2016 Draft.)
