weren't you a cavs fan? O. Porterjr will not be bought out.

Why waive Gasol, he'll contribute come playoffs watch.

Ummmm. I am probably wrong but I will raise this flag. According to Spotrac, the Lakers are hard capped because they used both the MidLevel and BiAnnual exemptions in signing Matthews and Harrell this season. They currently only have $1.5 mil in space remaining under the hard cap. Drummond's veteran minimum contract will be over that ($2.3 mil for his years of service) . All of the current active salaries on the Lakers rosters are guaranteed so waiving a player does not get them more cap space.

Really curious on how this is going to happen.

Ahhhh. Forgot that the salary is prorated for the remaining games in the season.

James will tell front office how and who to get rid of.

No matter what, you can always sign players for minimum. Hard cap, salary cap, etc won’t block that.

Hard cap actually blocks that.

Really? I didn’t think anything did but you’re right.
