The Cap Space Question?

What if we sign Jimmer (2 mil) and Marcus Thorton (7 mil) as expected, and we are left with 11 million to sign a free agent, except everyone we have our eye on re-signs with their existing teams (i.e., Gasol with Memphis, Nene with Denver, Chandler with Dallas, etc.).

We would have to spend 9-11 mil (depending on the math) on mediocre players just to get to the minimum salary floor per the new CBA (which is something in season's past we were pretty good at), but in terms of our long term success, could be problematic.

I may be missing something or we may find a solution (like helping teams get under the cap for future draft picks), but with a compressed free agency period, there is a distict possibility, we could end up having to sign someone we don't really want or need. Plus, are there new rules regarding contract length? Could we sign someone for 1 year only or is there a minimum contract length? If we have to sign someone for longer than a year, we could be in trouble.

What if, after years of hording cap space, we have to use it on a combination of players like Chuck Hayes, Kwame Brown and/or Josh McRoberts. Please tell me this isn't possible.
