we're going by 08 09 salaries, not last year, so you're is wrong. and you need 12, well to be real technical, you need 13 players for the league minimum, but i guess we're just going for active roster.

Probably only because it is the best "value" contract in the NBA next season.
On his $16m contract the season after I am sure you would see more people choosing a better value player for that slot.
