Sylvanie-USA TODAY SportsSome of the details of the Los Angeles Lakers new signs Shawne Williams and Elias Harris have come to light.

It seems that the team gave both men a guarantee of $100,000.

As of now, all of the Lakers’ returning players have fully guaranteed contracts, along with Jordan Farmar, Nick Young, Chris Kaman and Wesley Johnson.

New additions Xavier Henry and Marcus Landry have no guarantees, which means only 13 players that all have guaranteed contracts, but there are 15 men on the roster.

The problem right now is that the Lakers’ are maxed out at 15 players, and they’ll likely sign rookie Ryan Kelly once he’s healthy. So, when it comes time to cut someone, look to Henry and Landry since the team won’t have to pay them anything.

However, if they are a hit at camp, then Henry and Landry would likely be the next to get cut.
