3 reason the Lakers-Cavs trade was a win-win

The Cleveland Cavaliers' two new acquisitions reportedly will wear familiar numbers in their new home, familiar at least to fans of the Purple and Gold and especially of the Black Mamba.

While Thomas and Frye can absolutely contribute to the Lakers for the remainder of this season - though Frye makes sense as a buyout candidate - both of them are on expiring contracts while Clarkson and Nance will make a combined $14.8 million next season.

Bryant saluted his former teammates for their time with the Lakers.

For more sports coverage, visit the ABS-CBN Sports website. Deng could be a candidate to be released via the "stretch provision", with the remaining money owed paid off over an extended period.

The Lakers will also get Channing Frye, who should help space the floor for Lonzo Ball who thrives off finding the open player.

"We talked to him, he's so excited", Johnson said of Thomas. If they knocked down the Deng obligation to $3.9 million annually, the Lakers could attempt to keep Randle, Caldwell-Pope or Lopez with a starting salary of $9.1 million. Randle, as a small-ball option, would probably want to gauge the free-agent market before committing to that salary, which could get in the way of the Lakers' timing.

The Lakers may have weakened themselves for this year with a big move before the trade deadline Thursday.

Or the team could let Randle leave and instead re-sign Caldwell-Pope, Lopez or another free agent altogether.

The Lakers have listened to offers or explored trades for both players that included first- or second-round picks, but sources indicate that none of those deals would save significant cap space for the future, thereby negating the initial reason for exploring trades for those players. Maybe not, but not many teams will have cap room this summer. It could give them as much as $70 million in cap space. The chance to play with James and George might appeal to the veterans hungry to be a part of a winning franchise. Johnson's comments contradicted an earlier ESPN report that the Lakers could delay their free agency plans until the summer of 2019 when the likes of Kawhi Leonard, Klay Thompson and Jimmy Butler are available.

At the league's current $101 million estimate for the 2018-19 season salary cap, $60 million is just about enough for two max contracts for players with 7-9 seasons of National Basketball Association experience and about $6 million short of the $65.7 million necessary to sign one 30 percent max player and one 35 percent max player.

If they fail, they dumped quality young players like D'Angelo Russell, Nance and Clarkson with little to show for it. "We have got to take the next step".

Now, when July hits, they need to close the deal.
