LeBron: New L.A. teammates share hoops love

LeBron James says people should evaluate his new Lakers teammates for their common love of basketball rather than their questionable reputations.

Before acquiring Dakari Johnson, Memphis was $564K over the luxury tax. With the $1.4M Johnson expiring contract, Memphis is now $473K below the tax. The Grizzlies have 15 guaranteed contracts and one partial in Andrew Harrison ($200K guaranteed). For Orlando, the $2.4M Jarell Martin is an expiring contract. This is the second time within the past week that Orlando has received cash in a trade. The Magic received $2M from Oklahoma City when they acquired Johnson last Friday.

Here is the breakdown for the Charlotte, Chicago and Orlando trade: The Bulls acquire the $1.65M non-guaranteed contract of Julyan Stone that has a August 1 guaranteed date. If Stone is waived, the cap space for Chicago will increase to $16M in room (if the Noah Vonleh hold is released). For Charlotte, Bismack Biyombo is under contract for the next two years with a cap hit of $17M per season. The Hornets now have $120.3M in salary and are $3.4M under the tax with 14 guaranteed contracts. Orlando gets much needed guard help with the $2.69M expiring contract of Jerian Grant. Like Biyombo, Timofey Mozgov has two years left with a cap hit of $16M and $16.7M.
