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
