He'll be a free agent in July. Almost all the Lakers will be, in fact.
The latter isn't necessarily a bad thing for a 22-42 team scratching the depths of the Western Conference standings.
But Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak will have a lot of work to do in a handful of months.
Who comes and who goes?
It's a mouthful, but in addition to Meeks, the Lakers' free agents this summer are: Pau Gasol, Jordan Farmar, Kent Bazemore, Wesley Johnson, Jordan Hill, Xavier Henry, Chris Kaman, Ryan Kelly and MarShon Brooks.
Nick Young holds a player option for $1.2 million next season that he will almost surely decline, becoming a free agent as well. Kendall Marshall has a non-guaranteed contract next season.
2013-14 salary: $19.3 million.
2014-15 salary forecast: Substantially lower.
Where to begin with him? He's a survivor, still here after all those trade rumors over the years, but he's not a great fit for Mike D'Antoni's offense. Age isn't helping him (34 in July) and his game has slowed in recent years. He can still put up numbers, though — he leads the team in scoring and rebounding — and is good enough for someone to give him a two-year deal worth about $20 million.
2013-14 salary: $1.55 million.
2014-15 salary forecast: Substantially higher.
Amid all the Lakers' injuries, he's the big winner in D'Antoni's offense, almost doubling his scoring average from last season to 15.3 points on the way to a nice payday. Some NBA minds think he could triple his salary. Will it be with the Lakers? Possibly.
2013-14 salary: $1.1 million.
2014-15 salary forecast: Higher.
