Danny Ainge rebuffs talk of LeBron-less East being Boston's to win

ESPN article penned by Chris Forseberg
http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/24072595/danny-ainge-rebuffs-talk-lebron-less-east-being-boston-win-really-care-that

he states that

"Only a few teams -- Atlanta, Sacramento, and Brooklyn -- have the sort of remaining cap space to make an offer to Smart that would be north of the non-taxpayer midlevel exception, and the Celtics can match any offer he receives"

I am not so sure this is accurate. While both Atlanta and Sacramento do have enough CAP space above the MLE, Brooklyn certainly does not.
Even if they were to renounce their CAP holds (Approximately $4.7 million) it would not give them enough CAP space to go North of the Non-taxpayer MLE. That is likely why the sign and trade rumor is floating around like a fart in the wind.
