Lakers have the ability to take on new salary in trades. The Sasha Vujacic deal from a year ago left them with a "trade exception" they can use to acquire players who make up to $5.5 million. But like the McRib, the Lakers' trade exception is for a limited time only. (It expires on December 15.) Unlike the McRib, it won't give anyone a crippling intestinal fungus.
As long as that contract expires next year (end of 2013) I dont think acquiring a contract through the trade exception would hurt us. From what I understand this has to be a salary dump (other team dumping an unwanted player to us) and we trade away a pick in return.
So heres a bunch of players
- They got salaries less than 5.5 mil and dont run past 2013
- Im guessing they're on the trading block since they have better options on the team
- Players that can fill some needs for us
- Wouldn't require more than a 2nd round pick from us
