Maybe we're thinking about this wrong...

It's 1 am so maybe I'm not thinking all too clearly, but maybe we're being a little short-sighted in our view of the Pacers cap space for next year.  Is it possible that the owners (and players) know an all out war is coming and that there is a good chance the 2011-2012 season could be a lockout?  And assuming that the season is cancelled then there are going to be some serious negotiations about salary and the hard cap.  This would mean the Pacers would enter the 2012-2013 season with no unrestricted free agents (the restricted are Hibbert, Price and Rush), all the dead weight contracts gone, a good core of relatively young players, and probably in a much better situation than most teams to make trades and to go after not one, but two years worth of free agents?

Of course the down side to this line of thinking is that we're doomed to another year of inactivity followed by no basketball at all. Does anyone know what would happen to the free agents next year if there is a lockout?  Also, would we have a normal summer of draft and free agency then the lockout in the fall of 2011?  Just curious.
