For next year?.
It depends on the final figures, but the T'Wolves will have around $20 million, Utah be around 10 million (although they have their own re-signing to do). Memphis also will have around 10 million, the Hawks will have around 15 (only Joe Johnson is highly paid. The rest of their guys are playing on their rookie contracts). The Bobcats will have almost 30 (although they have to re-sign Okafor). The Bulls will have around 20 (pending on options they might or might not take. They also have to re-sign Deng and Gordon), the Sixers will have around 15 (Webber, and his 19 million contract, is out of the books by next season)...
A few more might be well under the cap with a couple of trades (like the Sonics, who would be around 12 million under if they're able to trade Wilcox for expirers).
This year's figure is around 55 million, so I'm assuming something similar.
though I can see two or three teams being at least 10 million under the cap, most of the other teams will resign their young players and not be under the cap. Nowadays, the team that has the player coming out of contract has a much better chance of keeping and holds more power. Whether Biedrins gets resigned now or next offseason won't be much different
