    Little math about the Luxury Tax

    Lakers resign Howard and get about the same payroll as this year of $100M.

    Luxury Tax hit would be: $72.250.000

    Total $ spent: $172.250.000

    Lakers resign Howard but trade Gasol for cap space. Payroll at $80M

    Luxury Tax hit would be $11.000.000

    Total $ spent: $91.000.000




    Let's say the Lakers trade Gasol to the Jazz for cap space. How much money would that save them??? $81.250.000

    I do not want Gasol anywhere near this team. No way. First Boozer, then Al, and now you want to bring Pau into Utah?

    I don't really mind Gasol if he's just a gap fill for '14 while Favors & Kanter are getting better. He'll come off the books in '15 anyway.

    i think ur misusing the term "capspace." lakers dont gain any cap space by trading just gasol, they'd just be reducing their salary.
    lakers aren't a small market team needing to save money though. they don't trade elite talent for salary savings. they make a **** ton of $$$.

    I like Gasol, but I also only want 3 bigs in the rotation and I like Millsap more.

    If both Millsap and Al are gone, I'd look at it.

    Yeah, but nowhere does a franchise looking at $80 ****ing million in savings for a guy that comes off the bench for them and wouldn't want to be there simply shrug it off.

    i dont think they'd "shrug it off," like mark cuban said, EVERYTHING has to be considered--even using the amnesty on Kobe.
    But at the end of the day, lakers aren't dumping Gasol for nothin. Doesn't make sense for them. They're a billion dollar franchise and their stock is only going up.
    Maybe they dump MWP or Blake for nothin, but not Gasol. That's not to say they're not looking to trade Pau, I think he's def. on the block, but just not for simple no-talent expirings or 2nd round picks. They'd want something worthwhile in return.
