Atlanta Hawks: The next step

With that out of the way, on to some housekeeping . . . .

Once the trades become official on July 11, and after the Hawks compete an expected buy out of Jordan Farmar, they will have nine players under contract. Draft picks John Jenkins and Mike Scott will make it 11 once they sign their deals. Ivan Johnson will make it 12 if he signs his qualifying offer.

Here are the cap salaries for those 12 players (in millions):

Josh Smith: $ 13.2
Al Horford: $ 12.0
Devin Harris: $ 8.5
Zaza Pachulia: $ 5.2
Anthony Morrow: $ 4.0
Johan Petro: $ 3.5
Jeff Teague: $ 2.4
Jordan Farmar: $ 1.5*
John Jenkins: $ 1.2
Ivan Johnson: $ .96+
DeShawn Stevenson: $ .852.33^
Jordan Williams: $ .76
Mike Scott: $ .40

Total: $ 50.4755.95
