On Monday, the Lakers let their final asset from the Dwight Howard trade slip away.
The team’s $1.2-million trade exception for Christian Eyenga, a throw-in to the Orlando Magic as part of the four-team trade, expired a full year after the initial blockbuster deal.
The Lakers would have been able to acquire a player in trade, making up to $1.3 million (the Eyenga exception, plus the padding of $100,000 allowed by the league), without sending out any players to match salary.
