Since Pierce opted out Dirk opted out Amare ect does that mean Boston/Dallas/PHX ect all have cap room to sign a new max F/A?

it deoends just bc they opt out doesnt mean they have the cap room say the cap is 50 million and the celtic s payroll is 65 and pierce opts out of a 20 million contract then they have 5 million in space not enough to sign a max player not sure of the cap situation for those teams and the numbers i used were made up but i hope you get the point

In the case of Dirk, it's a near certainty that he's only opting out to re-negotiate a better contract and extend with the Mavs, who I'm sure will pay him a max salary (which they can do because of Bird rights, if I'm not mistaken).

A few months ago or whenever somebody responded to a post saying if LeBron leaves Cleveland the Cavs won't have that much money.How?

I'm guessing it has something to do with a player who was drafted by that team, but I have no idea how it goes.

does the rule state you cant exceed the cap to sign a FA on another team? or did i mess that up?

If you're over the cap, you can only sign free agents using exceptions such as Bird rights, the MLE, the BAE, etc.

Without LBJ re-signing, the Cavs have $44,290,746 in guaranteed salary for the 2010-11 season, leaving them with probably around $11 million to spend on a free agent, not enough for a max contract. I'm guessing what you heard was something along these lines.

For pretty much exactly the same reason as the Cavs having around the same amount that I explained in my post above this one^.
