The Nets were able to absorb the Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur contract because of the $1.5M free agent cap hold of Joe Harris. The trade would not have worked had Brooklyn signed signed Harris to his $8M cap hit once the moratorium was lifted. Brooklyn still has $2.6M in cap space available with 14 players under contract. The Nets can exceed the cap to sign Harris because of the early bird exception.The $4.4M room midlevel exception is reserved for Ed Davis.

Sources: Buyout clears Howard's path to Wizards

The Pistons have James Ennis' early bird rights and have made re-signing him a priority. Several other teams, including the Sixers, Rockets and Nets, have expressed interest in signing the 28-year-old wing, league sources say.

Like the Joe Harris signing, Brooklyn can exhaust available cap space first before signing Ed Davis to the $4.4M room midlevel exception.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

Brooklyn can let the Joe Harris $1.5M hold count against cap, use available cap space and circle back to sign Harris. The Nets with the Harris hold have $6.6M in room that could increase based on a potential Dwight Howard buyout.

Dzanan Musa has a small $1M buyout in his contract. The intent is that Musa is not a draft and stash and that he will be in a Nets uniform next season. Brooklyn can chip in $700K to reduce the cost.

With the Dwight Howard trade, only Allen Crabbe will have a guaranteed contract for the Nets in 2019-20. The Nets could potentially have up to $60M+ in room next summer but will be contingent on the restricted free agency of D'Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
