Lakers Waive Chris Duhon as Expected
The Lakers waived veteran point guard Chris Duhon on Saturday, according to a team release. Duhon would have earned $3.75 million for the coming season had the Lakers kept him under contract into July. Instead, Duhon will receive $1.5 million of his salary that was fully guaranteed. The Lakers saved more than $2.25 million in salary — possibly up to $9 million in luxury tax.
