Masai said when he first came back that his aim was on the 2014-15 season rather than this one, and that makes sense.
First off: the 2014 free market bonanza hype is overblown. Half of the huge marquee players are just going to resign with their current teams (Dirk, Kobe) or get their big extensions (George, Boogie, Monroe). Really, the 2014 free agent hoopla comes down to two things: 1.) Whether whether the Big Three decide to stay in Miami or move on to the next thing (which is by no means guaranteed, and the better a season Miami has this year, the more likely they are to stay together; if they get the threepeat, no chance they don't go for a fourpeat, basically) and 2.) the Melo-drama, because Melo will be likely courted by everybody, but especially by New York and the Lakers.
(There's actually a strong chance that Rudy could be one of the biggest free agents next summer if he exercises his player option; if the Big Three re-up then his free agent value rises significantly. Basically, Rudy wants to be a free agent in whatever year Melo and LeBron aren't free agents, and it's more LeBron then Melo since Melo plays power forward so well. I could easily see the Lakers thinking that a starting foursome of Rudy, Melo, Kobe and Nash is their gameplan, and it's not the worst gameplan really.)
Second, like Matt just pointed out: the only way we have a lot of cap room in summer 2014 is if Rudy exercises his option (in which case we're competing for our own player's services). So we'd have not a lot of money competing for not a lot of options.
2015 is the better year to aim for. We'll really have not a lot of money committed at all, it's a much richer free agent market for next-level stars (Love, LMA, Rondo, et cetera) and we won't have to go overboard unloading our bad contracts (Landry, etc.).
