The Dwight Howard Drama Unfolds

Recommended Posts

somehow I don't find that nearly as interesting. I hope this site has back up servers for when that goes down because the signing of a back up point guard on a sub 20 win team is big news :)

Well considering the fact that we don't have Uhn as a back up(thank god) and we only have one pg on our roster, signing a backup pg will be big news to me.

The Lakers already have financial commitments to Kobe Bryant at $30.45 million, Pau Gasol at $19.285 million, Steve Nash at $9.3 million, Steve Blake at $4 million and Jordan Hill at $3.563 million.

 

When including Howard's expected maximum contract, the Lakers will have approximately $92 million committed to just six players.

 

With a tax line at $75 million, the Lakers would owe $34.3 million for just those six players.

Well, if they want superteam they'll have to pay superteam price.

I think this is the case. I was told Houston was no longer offering Lamb/Parsons and none of the other young guys they could offer are any better than Harkless. You can't assume they were offering the Toronto pick either. I think Dwight and HWNSNBU scared off Houston and forced our hands on this one.

 

Lets not forget if they were scared about Dwight Houston could of easily had Bynum. I think the biggest factor in Houston deal was them landing both Lin and Asik. Also according to woj and Hollinger the TOR pick was for sure part of the offer.

 

I just wish we could have got at least one decent pick or a first in this years draft. 2014, 2015, 2017 all lotto protected and a long way away.

The Los Angeles Lakers will tip off their 2012-13 campaign against the Dallas Mavericks, who very desperately wanted to trade for Dwight Howard. However, it appears that the Mavs won't have to witness Howard's game up close Oct. 30, because multiple sources have told ESPN that Howard will not be ready for the start of the regular season. He will still be rehabbing his surgically repaired back.

 

 

I guess the Lakers will start the season without Dwight.....LOL

 

I guess this makes Jordan their starting center?

In fairness, this year's draft looks to suck. I'd've been happy enough with 2014 picks, but it would've been awfully nice to get one that had a realistic chance of being in the lottery.

the lakers don't care about paying 34 million in tax for just six players. they'll fill the rest of the team with minimum and just over minimum salary guys probably making their tax payment 40 million or a bit more.

 

the new tax structure just makes it more difficult for small market teams to exceed the cap, the major market teams can easy absorb the added cost.
