You are basically right. If we retain Lee's Bird Rights, it will cost us $10.5 mil against our cap space (1.5*final year salary). That would leave us approx $5 mil in cap space after 1 max is signed.

But, if we retain Lee's Bird Rights, we can go over the cap to sign him. So we can sign 1 max for $16 mil, fill the roster with approx $5 mil, then go over the cap to resign Lee, or sign-and-trade him for the 2nd max.
