    Absolutely

    I don't see any other team matching two 2nd round picks for Whiteside so IMO that can most likely get it done. Sacto has a whole different regime, no more Divac or Peja. This current ownership and FO personnel have no beef with the Lakers. They'd be gifted two 2nd round picks for a player who will be gone in a few months.
    If we were able to make this trade, how would his salary affect our payroll?

    Cooks contract lined up perfectly with Whitesides, there wouldn't have been any change to our payroll. And since Cook wasn't getting any PT his contract would've been ideal. Now the contract that lines up with HW is Morris', I would've preferred Cooks. Or Mathews which would open up an extra million. We are soo close to the NBA apron we cannot take on that much over HWs contract that will put us over the apron. I believe we also have to sign a player to a league minimum contract very soon to meet the leagues minimum roster count.
