holdouts, cheap FO, salary cap, etc.

There have obviously been a ton of comments on Cort and CJ in the past day. There is an undercurrent of a debate regarding whether our FO is cheap and screws players or not. I'm going to try to set this straight (and perhaps even get set straight myself).

My understanding of the new CBA is that teams must spend at least 99% of the salary cap this year. If this is the case, there are 2 ramificaitons:

1. The team can not be "cheap." It's gotta spend that money somewhere.

2. Players holding out for more money are not "sticking it to the man," they're sticking it to their fellow players. Since the roster size is capped, and the total salary cap must be spent, they can't get extra money from Bud, only from one of their teammates.

If I were Mike, I would ask Cort and CJ to tell me which of their teammates they would like to see cut to give them more money.

Am I missing something?
