Lakers cap situation is wide open

The Lakers have a projected $23M in cap space this summer. If it is indeed Kobe Bryant's last season and with the salary cap projected to spike to $89M in the summer of 2016, the Lakers have just one player on a guaranteed contract for the '16-17 season (Nick Young at $5.4M).
