They won't have this payroll next season. Gasol will be gone either by trade or amnesty, Artest will be gone or he'll have to reduce his pay to nearly nothing. Blake might be gone if we need to shed more money. Morris, Duhon, are all gone for sure.
Bryant 30, Howard 21, Nash 9, and Hill 3.5 are the only ones I think guaranteed to come back. Clark and Meeks come back too at around 3.5 a piece. Jamison back for about 1.5 million. Yes that's basically a full roster's worth of pay, but with Bryant at 30 million that's what it is.
why would Jamison come back? Even with those said players gone, this team would still have one of the highest payrolls in the league, I dont see mgmt. adding any longer term players of any signficance anyways that would affect their 2014 plans. This team is old even with out Pau/Metta and there no way of adding a starting calibre player w/o trading Pau, this team is still limited to the mini MLE at best with those 2 gone.
