Per the report, Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga and Jemerrio Jones are heading to the nation’s capital as part of the Davis trade.
Here’s how much each player makes in 2019-20 (via Spotrac):
- Mo Wagner: $2.06 million
- Isaac Bonga: $1.42 million
- Jemerrio Jones: $1.42 million
Add them up, and the Lakers are clearing roughly $4.9 million off the books. Additionally, Davis is waiving his $4.1 million trade kicker, per Woj.
The Lakers are targeting some of the biggest names on the market, too, if you believe the rumors. Now they have the cash to make it work.
