Default More Luxury Tax Moves Coming

With the amnesty of Metta World Peace along with the addition of center Chris Kaman, swingman Nick Young and point guard Jordan Farmar, the Lakers are still over the luxury tax threshold at about $75.4 million in salary.


Kaman and Young signed their contracts over the last couple of days. Farmar and the Lakers need to finish a buyout from Turkish club Andolu Efes.

Can the Lakers find a way to get below the $71.7-million luxury tax threshold?

The team still needs to add at least three players to the roster, presumably including their pick in the 2013 draft, forward Ryan Kelly. The rookie would make “only” $490,180.

If the Lakers add another couple of veterans at the minimum salary their total payroll will be about $77.6 million.

On Friday, former Times columnist Mark Heisler wrote at LakersNation.com that the Lakers might look to dump Steve Blake and Jordan Hill before the trade deadline to get below the tax threshold.

I like the idea of getting rid of Blake and Hill. Both are injury prone and have very limited skill sets. We need to continue to get young athletic playmakers. I dont know who we could add to replace them but I dont think either of them is very good.
