Lakers are going to have to pony up to keep Sessions, Hill
 

 

When the Lakers traded for Ramon Sessions, the thought was long-term not short. They knew he could opt out at the end of this season and become a free agent and that they might have to pay to keep him.

But the surprising play they have gotten from Jordan Hill these playoffs has given them another player they would have to pay to keep. Which is not ideal for a team trying to reduce its tax burden as the penalties for that are going to get much stiffer in a couple years.

Hill tried to dance around the issue of free agency when asked about it by the Los Angeles Times after the backup big posted a double-double against Denver Sunday.

Hill will be a free agent after the season, though it seems increasingly probable the Lakers will try to bring him back even though he faces a third-degree felony a.ssault charge in Houston for allegedly choking a former girlfriend in February.

“Being a free agent, anything can happen,” Hill said. “I’m just trying not to focus on that right now. I’m just trying to focus on this ring. It will definitely feel great to have a ring on my finger and after the season, we’ll go from there.”

Sessions is set to make $4.5 million next season but is expected to opt out and get a raise and a long-term deal. Hill is making $2.8 million this year.

The Lakers are already pushing nearly $80 million in payroll next season (and they want to work out a long-term extension with Andrew Bynum this summer to extend beyond next season). That’s well over the expected $70 million expected luxury tax line with players to add. They can’t take on a lot of long-term salary.

Well, that or they need to move Pau Gasol and maybe amnesty Metta World Peace.

4.5 a year is good for sessions, at least he will be on a bonafide contender every year.

I know, I know

To be honest if you should blame anybody really it's Walsh for picking him then shipping him out. But to be fair it was to help us in cap space

Incorrect.

Ariza I don't know what the fu*k we did with that lol.

Hill he got developed through the Rockets so calm yourself with that one And when we did give him playing time he looked shook & his hands were dreadful. Almost as bad as Mosgov's.

Toney Douglas there is no point in developing him. He's a shooting guard trapped in a point guard's body & has horrible tunnel vision. He might improve his shot because he's had a bad year after the surgery but if you want him please take him.

wtf do knicks fans know about basketball. these are the same phaggots who got hype about amare 6 ft 11 non defensive a.ss coming to new york giving him a max contract then they trade the best up & coming supporting cast in the east for melo who basically does the same sh*t amare does and as those 2 phaggots canceled out one another no one stopped to think
"wait we just gave 2 players who play zero defense max contracts"

then the following year they get hype about signing baron davis, mike bibby, jr smith

and out of that whole roster only one person plays defense and thats tyson

if knick fans knew sh*t about ball they would not be knick fans
