Team executives Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss discussed the basketball side of his decision in terms of the Lakers plans moving forward while Jeanie Buss and Tim Harris talked about the business aspect of the franchise.

James Worthy also spoke at the meeting and it was rumored that Magic Johnson gave his input via phone call. The rendezvous also included representatives of Anschutz Entertainment Group and Time Warner Cable discussing the impact of the Los Angeles market.

They also took on the salary of Jeremy Lin in a trade with Houston that also landed L.A. the Rockets’ 2015 first-round pick along with future draft considerations.

In doing so, the team is still able to preserve an immense amount of cap space for next summer, especially if they don’t pick up their team option on Hill after this season.
