I know, I know its still early to tell...
But I just want to ask this... To members who knows regarding salary cap etc..
IF in this season Kobe plays well, and he PROVES that he's still capable of playing 3yrs on a high level as one of our franchise player/leader of LALAland, and PROVES he STILL deserves a $20-25m payday... (because of capability, loyalty and the no. 1 money making player of the team)
Can we make his contract as an Assistant Playing Coach, just pay him $12m as a player and $8m as a assistant coach (which he shows he's capable, when he coached on the sidelines when injured)
1. Will the $8m pay as an Asst Coach credited on our salary cap? If not
2. Will the league allows that?
