Default Lakers plans regarding Dwight (via Ding)

These were posted on Kevin Ding's Twitter. Pretty interesting, but at the end of the day we never know what the Lakers will do.

Quote:
Here is the Lakers' plan if Dwight leaves: Keep Pau for final year of his deal. Use amnesty provision to cut Metta and save $30 million in luxury-tax payments. Re-sign Earl Clark if reasonable, sign someone else on the cheap and/or plug in Meeks or Blake to the starting lineup that will have two vacancies without Dwight and Metta but still Pau. Jordan Hill is the only other frontcourt player under contract right now.

Quote:
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).

Why amnesty Gasol when you can get players back for him. Amnesty Metta if anything in both cases.

So, basically, plan A = Tank for 2014 draft, and plan B pray Kobe + Dwight will be enough to win the West possibly win a championship.

I like plan A.

Does LA own a 2014 draft? I though it went to the suns in the Nash Deal.

So Tanking would be bad, if thats the case

if the lakers drop gasol or metta.. kobe will ask for a trade

he'l go off on laker management for caring more about saving a few bucks than winning titles.. he'l get out clean and easy cause the lakers will have used their 1 time amnesty already ... so they cant use it on kobe and he'l have all the leverage again

Pretty sure that amnesty doesn't take a player off your luxury tax bill.

It's Kevin Ding. His game reports are fine but his offseason stuff is usually off the mark

Yes it does, that's why it's there. When they changed the tax system in the new CBA they gave each team the onetime use amnesty provision. It takes the players contract off your books as far as the cap goes. Team still has to pay the player his money but it's off the books
