How significant is significant?

Dirks announcement that he would be willing to take a "significant" pay cut next year is part of the Mav's sales pitch to potential free agents. But it begs the question: How much is talking about? If it is a Duncanesque 10 million a year deal, that's a pretty good pitch. But what if he's saying he would sign a 1 yr. veteran's minimum deal in 2014 to attract the right guy? That would put the Mav's in an entirely different position. They would have their franchise FA, Dirk AND the ability to add more than 30 million dollars in FAs in 2014. They would have Dirk's bird rights in 2015 and Cuban could go into the tax to make the lost year up to him. That would be a pretty good pitch.
