I meant something else... there's matching salaries...and then there's matching talent (value). I could get to $20m with Theo Ratliff and Wally.
But Deng, Gordon, Wallace #9 is a lot of talent.

i still have no problem with your proposal, why should the lakers take on a bad contract... kobe demands may have hampered the lakers a tad when it comes to negotiating but he is kobe bryant still and will command a high price...

Restricted free agency exists only on a limited basis. It is allowed following the fourth year of rookie "scale" contracts for first-round draft picks. It is also allowed for all veteran free agents who have been in the league three or fewer seasons. However, a first round draft pick becomes an unrestricted free agent following his second or third season if his team does not exercise its option to extend the player's rookie scale contract for the next season. All other free agency is limited to unrestricted free agency.

In order to make their free agent a restricted free agent, a team must submit a qualifying offer to the player by June 30. The amount of the qualifying offer for players on rookie "scale" contracts is based on the player's draft position. The qualifying offer for all other players must be for 125% of the player's previous salary, or the player's minimum salary plus $175,000, whichever is greater. The qualifying offer must be for one season. A player can elect to accept his qualifying offer (the qualifying offer must be accepted by March 1) and play the following season under its terms. This is sometimes done in order to become an unrestricted free agent the following summer.

If the player is coming off the fourth year of his rookie scale contract, then in addition to a qualifying offer, his team can also submit a maximum qualifying offer. A maximum qualifying offer is for six seasons at the maximum salary with 10.5% annual raises. It can contain no options, ETOs or bonuses of any kind, and must be fully guaranteed. When a team submits a maximum qualifying offer (in essence "stepping up" with a maximum contract offer before the player even hits the market), it places a more stringent requirement on other teams' offer sheets (see below).

When another team wants to sign a restricted free agent, it signs the player to an offer sheet, the principal terms of which the original team is given seven days to match. The offer sheet must be for at least two seasons (not including option years). If the player's prior team also submitted a maximum qualifying offer, then the offer sheet must be for at least three seasons (not including option years). If the player's original team exercises its right of first refusal by matching the principal terms of the offer sheet, the player is then under contract to his original team. If the player's original team does not exercise its right of first refusal within seven days, the offer sheet becomes an official contract with the new team.


To summarize, a restricted free agent essentially has four options:


He can accept his prior team's qualifying offer, play for one season, and become a free agent again the following summer.


He can accept his prior team's maximum qualifying offer (if applicable, and if one has been submitted) and play under a long-term contract at the maximum salary.


He can sign an offer sheet with another team, which his prior team is given the opportunity to match.


He can negotiate a new contract with his prior team that is independent of the qualifying offer or maximum qualifying offer.

Honestly, i believe you guys are in a bit of a dream land. I can never see Chicago giving up Ben Gordon (leading scorer), Loul Deng (breakout season), Ben Wallace (best defender), and the #9 pick for Kobe Bryant.

The #9 pick wouldn't be a problem. Chicago already has a young, talented squad and no chance at Oden or Durant. But I see them using that pick in a trade for a low-post scorer. They have a lot of depth at Guard (Gorden, Kirk Hinrich, Chris Duhon, Adrian Griffin, and Deng). With Ben Wallace and the aging P.J. Brown Chicago has no real low-post threat and that hurts the guards.

The Lakers need to make a serious push to get Jermaine O'Neil.
