The Lakers ' Jordan Hill is 11 games away from qualifying from a $63,600 contract incentive. The forward-center is in the second year of a two-year contract with the Lakers. His base compensation for each season is $3.5 million. Should Hill play at least 48 games while averaging 14.1 minutes a night, his incentive kicks in -- pushing his total to $3,563,600.

Had Bryant gone as far as taking a minimum contract for next season at $1.5 million, the Lakers might have had enough room for two maximum free agents. Now that number drops to one, also leaving the futures of Pau Gasol, Jordan Hill, Steve Blake and other Lakers in doubt after this year. If he had taken a one-year minimum deal, Bryant would then qualify for a maximum deal for the 2015-16 season at about $20 million, for a two-year average of $10.8 million including his one year at the minimum. If he signed a two-year deal in 2015 at the maximum, his three-season average could have climbed to about $14.8 million. Los Angeles Times

Here is the Lakers' plan if Dwight leaves: Keep Pau for final year of his deal. Use amnesty provision to cut Metta and save $30 million in luxury-tax payments. Re-sign Earl Clark if reasonable, sign someone else on the cheap and/or plug in Meeks or Blake to the starting lineup that will have two vacancies without Dwight and Metta but still Pau. Jordan Hill is the only other frontcourt player under contract right now. Sulia
