Surprised there wasnt already a thread about this. 48.5m for 2 years. Yikes. Good for Kobe, bad for Lakers fans. Thoughts Lakers sign a max player are delusional. Larry Coon is a Lakers homer but does a fair job of handling the numbers. Key thing is Lakers would need to disassociate from the entire roster (other than Kobe and Nash) to make a Carmelo type deal. Not happening. Sure they can amnesty Nash but it buys all of 6m in space and creates yet another hole.
