I ran the numbers, and it works well.

Cavs guaranteed contracts in millions next year:

6.3 Jack
7.5 Kyrie
5.5 Bennett
5.4 Thompson
3.9 Waiters
1.6 Tyler Zeller
1.5 Karasev
= 31.7

Add Lebron ~20 mil
Add Favors ~7 and Randle ~3.5
= additional 30.5-32

Gets it to ~62 million and still under the cap of 66.5. That leaves 4-5 million to fill out the roster, or even more if they wanna dip into the luxury tax like Boston did.

Option on Varajao (9.8), Gee (3.2) and Hopson (2.4). Gee and Hopson aren't needed, but if they could also keep Varajao, they'd have all they would need.

Starters with under the cap roster:
Kyrie
Waiters
Lebron
Randle
Favors

Next five:
Jarrett Jack
Karasev (who?)
Tristan Thompson
Anthony Bennett (fmr number 1 pick)
Tyler Zeller

That lineup could make a run. It would be very sick with Varejao in the starting 5, and Ray Allen on a minimum contract.
