Pops agent Ritchie Paul revealed that pop finally agreed to accept the Lakers offer of 40 million yuan for three years and decided to stay in the defending champion. There are several teams interested in pop, but he finally decided to stay with the original team.
According to the source, the third year of the contract is not fully guaranteed salary, but only partially guaranteed.
If Davis decides not to cut his salary, then the salary structure of the Lakers is so embarrassing that there is too little room for operation. The Lakers may send McGee away through trade in exchange for some players with low annual salary.
Before that, Popper chose to jump out of his contract. He will have $8.4 million in the Lakers next season, and he wants to seek a long-term contract with a juvenile salary of more than 10 million yuan.
After the free agent market opened, the Lakers and Popper started negotiations. According to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times, the Los Angeles Times reported that the Lakers and their free agent guard Popper were interested in each other, and the offer was about 12 million yuan a year.
Last season, Popper averaged 9.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game, and played a more outstanding role in the playoffs. He was the main force of the teams backcourt, with an average of 10.7 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game, making him the third scorer of the team.
