Lakers 2022 Season Payroll 

Post#1 » by Suprasc1 » Wed Jul 29, 2020 5:36 pm

The Lakers only have Lebron James on the Payroll for the 2021-2022 Season! Looks like they are planning to go all in that year.

Build the best roster with the free agents that year.
Lebron could possibly take a slight paycut to add a extra star or superstar. $125-130 million salary cap

Let's see your team!

LeBron 30-35 M
Durant 35-40
Kawhi 35-40
Caruso 5 mil
Green 5-10 mil
Mcgee 5mil
Howard Minimum
J.R Minimum
Cook minimum
Waiters 3 Mil
Kostas minimum

That's the team i would make with the salary payroll.

Once you add Anthony Davis on a 30% max deal to LeBron's contract there isn't that much room when you still need 3 more starters and another 3-4 solid rotation guys after that.

AD could easily leave this upcoming season or just sign a 1yr max deal.

So just assume that's the acutal roster and fill up the rest of the roster spots

actually isnt it that lakers only will (purposedly) have davis eatin say 25% of the cap and lebron can ( and will if they can add a superstar)opt out and take a longer but relatively cheaper contract?

thats the plan.

will it work?

deppends on how things roll in the bubble and next season.

So you are assuming Lakers don't sign AD AND dont go all in next year? Is Lebron just going to play with 1-year guys and punt on a season in his mid-30s.

There's a reason you needed to bump this

Building a team with cap space really only works if you've got a couple guys already in-house on bargain contracts. Otherwise you're working from a significant handicap as other teams can spend more - up to the luxury tax line easily and even past it for a big market contender.

The Lakers operating on the cheap cap space plan doesn't really make sense. I'd expect them to be spending more to try and win because they easily can.

You can simply make a roster or not.
It's not that complicated

C - Jokic
PF - Giannis
SF - Lebron
SG - Kawhi
PG - Curry

Lebron is going to get it done. He's the best GM in the league.

Watch your mouth.

This is a team that can possibly be created with the Payroll. Don't come in here acting rude.

Thank you! Make a team or be respectful

Kawahi and Greek dont come across as guys that will sign with an opp. Lakers are one of their biggest threats. I highly doubt they go full KD

Lebron joined Wade/Heat
Durant joined Warriors
Kawhi Left after being a champion
Jordan retired after winning 3 rings in a row

People can doubt all they want and imagine this and that player doesn't want to do this or that.

They are all free agents and fans/media opinions don't matter at all.

If they can join especially when they are a little older or haven't won. They will join up together
