Yeah, the starting point guard on the Lakers for their last 5 championships and current President of the Players Association ain't gonna be taking a pay-cut, but it's hard to picture him leaving LA. I'm not sure what the Lakers cap situation is off hand, but I'm almost sure they can afford to pay him.
