The Lakers lost a third player for the season Monday, when swingman Xavier Henry ruptured his left Achilles' tendon in practice. The exceptions represent half of the salaries of Nash ($9.7 million) and Randle ($3 million). The Lakers might also apply for an exception for Henry, although half of his $1.1-million contract might not be enough for the team to acquire a replacement player. Los Angeles Times

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. Los Angeles Times
