    Lakers May Apply for Player Exception

    The Lakers have until Tuesday to apply for a “disabled players exception” for back up big man Jordan Hill.
    It was announced on Friday that Hill will miss the remainder of the season with a hip injury that will sideline the forward-center for six months.
    The Lakers can apply for an exception worth half of Hill’s $3.56-million salary. There’s no guarantee the league will approve the exception if the Lakers even apply for it, but if granted, the Lakers would gain about $1.78 million in additional spending power.
    The Lakers can use that $1.78 million to either sign a player for the remainder of the year, or trade for one in the final year of his contract (with an additional $100,000 of leeway via trade for a $1.88-million maximum). The Lakers also waived rookie reserve guard Darius Johnson-Odom opening up a roster spot below the maximum of 15.

    We should've signed Delonte and Kmart 8 weeks ago

    I wonder if it's tradeable? Jamison, Duhon plus DPE to Char for Gerald Henderson...

    These two can help more than any of the scrubs on the bench! That is for sure!

    George said wherever he ends up, he wants it to be his long-term home. “I’m not looking to bounce around and play for multiple teams throughout my career,” George said. “The decision I make will ultimately be to build something. So, this next decision, whatever it is, is to make sure I’m there for a duration.” – via Oklahoman

    Gasol still seeing stars? Trade with Minni!

    All we need to add to this drama is Delonte West
    They should get T-Mac, he's got one more solid season left in him... if he can be bought out of his contract in China

    How much of a player exception could we get if, say, Ebanks fell down a flight of stairs and required season-ending surgery? You know, hypothetically.

    Apply for the exception and if granted, sign Kenyon Martin.
