Kobe and Pau can you spare a dime?

I saw this article and thought I'd share it with you to relate a point of view. The Lakers carry one of the NBA's largest team salaries going into the 2013 season, don't have a whole lot of pocket change to use to attract free agents and are trying to field a team with a lot of holes on the roster. Couple this with having players like Kobe and Pau, each projected to earn over $30.4 million and $19.3 million respectively in 2013, I feel humbled as a Spurs fan that we have players who will sacrifice some of their salaries for the best of the team. Go Spurs!!!!

Lakers sign Elias Harris to a two-year contract

Brett Pollakoff, , Jul 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

The Lakers had Elias Harris on their Summer League roster, an undrafted rookie out of Gonzaga who showed flashes of potential on both ends of the floor.

Needing to round out the roster with some minimum salary players, the team decided that what Harris brings to the table was enough to earn him a partially guaranteed deal that could last up to two seasons.

From Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times:
Harris received a yet-to-be-disclosed, partial guarantee on his salary of $490,180 in his first season with the team. His second year, at $816,482, is not believed to be guaranteed.
Once the Lakers sign rookie Ryan Kelly (48th pick in the draft), the roster will be 13 deep. The team will probably carry more than the maximum of 15 into training camp.
The second year is likely a team option, and one that Harris will have the opportunity to earn given the team‚€™s need to fill those slots at the end of the roster with young and inexpensive talent.

In five Summer League appearances, Harris averaged 10.2 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

And how much is Steve Nash getting? Suddenly makes Splitter's salary look more reasonable.

Steve Nash got paid on his name and past accomplishments. He's barely a vet minimum guy with his injury history of back problems. Oh yeah, about 10 million.
