Lakers salary/tax for 2013-14 could exceed 200Mil

Quote:
The Los Angeles Lakers could spent nearly $200 million on player payroll and associated luxury taxes during the 13-14 season.

The Lakers already have $79.6 million committed to eight players for the 13-14 season. Assuming they re-sign Howard next summer to a maximum contract that calls for him to make $20.5 million in the first year, they will then exceed a payroll of over $100 million.

The Lakers still have their amnesty provision, should they decide to use it next offseason.

"Whenever I've talked to [Buss] about a budget, it's always kind of, 'Well, Mitch, we have a budget, but tell me who you're thinking about and I'll tell you if I want him,'" Mitch Kupchak said. "So yes, the budget and tax threshold is something we're going to pay attention to, but he's always understood the value and allure of a superstar and a team that wins."

The Raptors could probably be bought for less than that. :cookie:

Here's the catch. Lakers make SOOOO much more than that. So the tax is useless.

So why not stack your team and pay a huge tax? Bone head fans all buy in to the "Wow! We have a great team!!"

No buttwads. You bought a great team.

It takes skill regardless. The Knicks and Mavericks have spent more than the Lakers in the past decade, yet do not have as much to show for it.

It starts with good management. Lakers have that. Teams like the Knicks don't.

I disagree, to me it starts with winning.

Always believed there was more money to be made with a championship team, than saved with a last place squad. Gotta spend it to make it man.
