Kevin Ding's post on LA Lakers | Latest updates on Sulia
The Lakers' plan if Dwight stays? Much different. Pau is all but a goner, most likely via amnesty provision to ...
save more than $60 million in luxury-tax payments. The oft-traveled path of trying to trade Pau remains in play if Dwight stays -- though a scenario that brings back some talent and doesn't cause payroll risks for the future is so far unknown.
Metta, not Pau, gets to stay for the final season on his Lakers' contract. Earl Clark remains a candidate to return because Pau's power-forward spot would be open (though Metta playing more PF makes sense to me).
