If the reports are true that Denver plans to buy out the last two years of Antonio McDyess' $13.63-million contract and make him a free agent with the ability to sign with any team, don't expect the Lakers to make a bid for the 6-foot-9 power forward.
The Nuggets acquired McDyess this week from the Detroit Pistons as part of a four-player deal that included Allen Iverson and Chauncey Billups. McDyess has refused to report to Denver.
The Lakers have a 14-man roster -- one shy of the league maximum of 15. The Lakers also still have their mid-level exception of $5.59 million to offer a player like McDyess.
"He's a good guy," Jackson said. "He's a good player and he's experienced. But right now in our situation, other than just watching what's happening, there's no interest that I can call right now."
Lakers rule out McDyess
