Lakers Scrambling to Free Up Salary-Cap Space

Lakers Scrambling to Free Up Salary-Cap Space Los Angeles is attempting to restructure their deal with New Orleans for Anthony Davis.

The Lakers need $32.5 million in salary-cap room to sign another max-salary free agent.

The team needs to make up roughly $9 million in contracts moved by July 6, when the Davis trade is finalized.

Los Angeles is trying to trade Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones.

Wagner was the No.

25 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft and has the most value of the available players.

If successful, Kyle Kuzma and LeBron James would be the only remaining Lakers from last season.

The Lakers are also looking at purchasing second-round picks in Thursday night's NBA draft.

Those contracts would only count as minimum salaries against the cap.

The salary cap resets on June 30, the official start of NBA free agency.
