As the Lakers work to clear cap space to sign free agents and absorb Hibbert’s contract, Nick Young is a strong candidate to be unloaded, sources told Yahoo Sports. The Lakers are finalizing details to acquire Hibbert, and there remains a possibility Los Angeles could send a player to the Pacers in the agreement, sources said. The Lakers and Pacers had agreed on a future second-round pick as compensation for Hibbert and his $15.5 million 2015-16 salary getting absorbed into Los Angeles’ salary-cap space. The Lakers are exploring trades for Young, Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre. Sacre and/or Kelly are possibilities to go to Pacers, sources said.

It’s unclear if the Lakers will be willing to make any significant moves this season, but as of Dec. 15, a number of Lakers became trade eligible. Nick Young, Ed Davis, Wesley Johnson, Ryan Kelly and Xavier Henry, who signed contracts over the summer, can now be traded by the Lakers. Young agreed to a four-year, $21-million contract with a player option on the final season. Davis and Johnson are on minimum contracts, although Davis has an option to play a second season, also at the minimum.
Bryant will make $25 million at 37 years old while Nick Young, Julius Randle and Ryan Kelly take up another $10 million. Various player options (Ed Davis) and team options (Jordan Clarkson, Robert Sacre) could add another $3 million, though Davis could opt out and drive that number even higher. Leave room for an estimated $5 million for their likely two first-round draft picks. It’s easy to see the Lakers allocating $43 million toward only nine players amid a conservatively estimated salary cap of $66 million for 2015-16. Throw in troublesome mandatory things called “cap holds” and the Lakers have only $21.5 million to spend next summer on free agents.
