NBA salary cap expert Larry Coon dropped by Taz & The Moose on Wednesday to give listeners a more thorough understanding of the salary cap and explain the factors that teams consider when constructing their roster.

While many teams have wiggle room as free agency approaches, the Lakers do not – regardless of whether they sign a third star.

“They’re not going to build a deep roster,” Coon said. “This is definitely going to be a top-heavy roster. But if you’re going to do that, you’ve got two players (in LeBron James and Anthony Davis) who are ideal to be building around.”
