Especially without*Dwight Howard*sticking around, the Lakers are loaded with cap space next summer — right now only*Steve Nash*is on the books for the summer of 2014 (and they could waive him and use the stretch provision to provide more cap space). The Lakers will ink*Kobe Bryant*to a new, discounted deal (ala*Tim Duncan*and*Kevin Garnett) to get his massive cap hold off the books, then they will have wheelbarrows of money to spend.
come on guys if Kobe Bryant really wants to get more rings he's going to do it this year! he's not even on contract for next year so why would they be talking about that!!?? I'm sure Kobe will sacrifice money from his contract this years to get rings! I bet kobe and the Lakers management have something Brewing!
