Ah yes, July 1st. The special day on the calendar when the Los Angeles Lakers think they are going to sign every superstar on Earth because they’re the Lakers and you’re not.
The Lakers are working to unload contracts, trying to create significantly more salary cap space, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2015
Around the league, executives believe the Lakers are pursuing space to offer free agent deals to LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre Jordan.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2015
Even in the miraculous event the Lakers were able to convince free agency’s two biggest stars to come play for them and their skeleton roster — is it even possible? The short answer is: no (unless Aldridge and DeAndre are willing to sign for less than the max LOL)
Pssssssst. I can think of a way LA can clear $25 Million off the books
