It is my understanding nba minimum contracts do not count against the cap so this will leave the lakers with the ability to do a sign and trade.
Monta Ellis is still out there and not getting the offers he wants. Maybe Monta Ellis in a S&T for 8million one year for Blake and hill and/or Meeks?
Could this work?

Yeah, but MDA only plays 8 guys, so adding players really doesn't mean much.

As slimjim stated, the luxury tax is at $71.748M, making the apron at $75.748M. Lakers Team Salary right now is $74,519,921, so yeah, we are under the apron but the problem is that the new CBA states that you must be under the apron AFTER the trade, which means that we can only receive $1.28M (aprox) on a S&T.
Well, I suppose the Gerald Henderson trade would be possible if the Bobcats want Blake and Henderson is willing to come to the Lakers for $5M.
