    Lakers debating MWP amnesty

    Ramona Shelburne ‏@ramonashelburne 8h
    Lakers can still amnesty Kobe, Blake or Metta. I'm told they're still weighing that with MWP

    Jim Buss will sign MWP to a 5 year, 120million deal. Mark my words.

    At this point, could we afford to amnesty any of them? It won't be Kobe. Maybe Blake or MWP but who would we get to replace them?

    Plus, even if we amnesty MWP we still wouldn't be able to do anything in free agency. I think its best to just hope he plays well and maybe use his expiring contract to pick someone up at the deadline.

    We might be low enough salary-wise to offer the full MLE to somebody if we amnesty MWP but they would probably rather save the cap space for next year

    It will be Metta. The entire city of LA will personally assassinate Jimbaco on his front yard if they even hint at amnestying Kobe and Blake makes less than Metta making it a waste to use on him. You don't use it on Pau because he is the only big you have left. Metta is the odd man out.

    I thought if you were a tax payer the previous year, no matter your salary cap situation you can't use the full MLE.

    Before they amnesty him, they better have exhausted all possible trade options.

    We want draft picks.
