Will The Lakers Sign And Trade For Payton?

Will The Lakers Sign And Trade For Payton?

Postby DMoNeY on Mon Jul 07, 2003 12:36 pm

Right now, the Lakers and the agent for Gary Payton are working on making a contract to land the All-Star to Los Angeles. Gary still would like to make more then the 4.9 million exception (MLE). If he rejects the offer, but still wants to play for the Lakers, who would the Lakers give up? Here are the approximate salaries:

Derek Fisher (3 million) Can he be a good back up?
Devean George (4.5 million) Will he eventually be worth his money?
Rick Fox (4.5 million) Can he be traded even though he is injured?
Slava Medvedenko (1.5 million) Power Forward of the future?
Kareem Rush (1 million) Will he ever get any playing time with Phil?
Brian Cook ($750,000) Can he fill the shoes of Mr. Clutch Horry?
Jannero Pargo ($500,000) Is he a 1 year wonder?

Lakers Free Agents:
Robert Horry (Play in Milwaukee or go home to Houston?)
Mark Madsen (Any questions? It's all about the championship dance)
Samaki Walker (He should just retire and refund his salary to the Lakers)
Brian Shaw (Does Mr. Reliable have another year left in him?)

For information on Salaries, go to Hoopshype.com they have a complete overview. Post your thoughts on what the Lakers would need to do if Gary Payton wants a sign and trade deal worked out.

Payton's not returning to the Bucks.. I know a GP will benefit from a sign and trade, but I dont think the Lakers are willing to give up a player for GP when all we could do is just sign him as a FA. I dont think the Bucks will help him out too.

To add to it...the Bucks really wouldn't benefit in a S&T. Who the hell could we give them?? They are already stacked at SF so no George.
