- Cannot receive a player in a sign and trade. They can sign and trade their own player to another team that is not over the apron.
- Will have their mid-level exception reduced from 5 million to 3 million.
- Will not get to use their bi-annual exception of 1.9 mill.
So what about this trade:
Metta World Peace, Steve Blake and Chris Duhon + 2nd Round Draft Pick (2013) FOR Paul Pierce
If they manage to use their $3 million on Kyle Korver and give veteran minimums to Devin Harris and Shawn Marion, and in the process, bring back the players from this year; this could be the 2014 Lakers team:
D. Howard/ J. Hill/ R. Sacre
P. Gasol/ A. Jamison/ E. Clarke
P. Pierce/ S. Marion/ D. Ebanks
K. Bryant/ J. Meeks/ A. Goudelock
S. Nash/ D. Harris/ D. Morris
Per Game Minutes
D12 = 35
Hill = 20
Gasol = 30
Jamison = 10
Clarke = 10
Pierce = 25
Marion = 15
Bryant = 30
Meeks = 20
Nash = 20
Harris = 25
What you guys think? Championship?
