L.A. Lakers Looking to Offload Contracts to Make Room for Max Level Player

With Anthony Davis already making his way to Los Angeles this offseason to play alongside LeBron James, the Los Angeles Lakers are trying to make things happen.

Currently, they only have so much cap space ($23.8M) to sign players this offseason, but they are scrambling to add more so they can add a max level player. How are they doing that? They want to offload some of their current contracts to make room to create $32 million in cap space by July 6.

The organization want to trade the contracts of Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones and acquire second round picks to not only provide talent on the cheap, but also knowing that those salaries will not count against the cap as much.

Of course, this hinges on Davis waiving his $4 million trade bonus.

While we don’t see him doing that, he could take one for the team in order to strengthen the squad and pursue a championship with better pieces.

It’ll be interesting to see if the Lake Show can create more space before June 30th to give themselves a better chance to be competitive next season. It’s going to be a tough road to the NBA Finals. They need all the help they can get.
