Even Cuban admits that he wouldn't do the same with Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki.

"I've made that commitment to him over the years, and he's returned that commitment," Cuban said.

so basically he's trolling

No. This is ISH. We read the thread title, post a reply and check the thread every minute hoping someone quoted us in a positive way. That makes us feel good and validated.

To be fair, the title is pretty much the same content as the article. Except, the title is a bit more blunt than what Cuban actually said, hypothetical or not.

D12: $19,536,360
Gasoft: $19,000,000

Lakers are already 9+ million over the cap with just 3 players.

League salary cap is 58 million. When the new luxury tax kicks in, every dollar above 70 million will be tripled. If the Lakers kept their current 100 million payroll, they'd be on the hook for 58 + 24 + 90 = 172 million dollars.

Unless all 3 guys take pay cuts, Lakers won't be able to improve in the offseason because D12 and Gasol's trade values are at all-time lows.

all true, and thats a hell of a luxury tax, even for LA. but by the trade deadline, gasols value should be pretty high again, considering he becomes a $20 million expirerer.

It's not the worst idea ever but they wont' do it. What might happen is Lakers giving away Pau Gasol "for free" to an under the cap team. I think that is realistic.

You guys have to realize that the luxury tax penalties starting next season are BEYOND ridiculous. It's absolutely insane. Even Knicks and Lakers are going to try to avoid them.

Mark Cuban is probably the last guy I'm calling looking for GM advice.

Depending how this season pans out, I'd say at least think about it.

That's probably a good thing since he's not the GM.

What's your point? Amnestying Kobe Bryant would do absolutely nothing for the rebuilding process.
