It's unclear if the
Young agreed to a four-year, $21-million contract with a player option on the final season. Davis and Johnson are on minimum contracts, although Davis has an option to play a second season, also at the minimum.
Kelly ($1.7 million) and Henry (1.1 million) were both signed via the team's room exception. Kelly has a fully guaranteed second season, while Henry, who is out for the season with a ruptured Achilles' tendon, is on a one-year deal.
Players signed over the summer cannot be traded until Dec. 15 or 90 days, whichever is later.
The rules are different for draft picks. Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson had a 30-day trade restriction over the summer that has long-since passed.
Young also received a similar raise, but he was re-signed while the Lakers were under the cap. The second season on Hill's contract is a team option.

Enough time has passed, since
FOR THE RECORD
Dec. 18, 2:10 p.m.: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that Bryant could not be traded until the end of this season.
Nash has a 15% trade bonus in his contract, which applies only to the remainder of his contract for the season. If he were traded at the exact midway point of the season, the bonus would be based on half of his $9.7-million salary, or $727,575.
Because Hill, Henry and Johnson re-signed on one-year deals, they can block any trade the Lakers might choose to make. The Lakers can technically get around Hill's veto power by opting him in to the second season of his contract, also at $9 million.
The Lakers also have two disabled player exceptions, which can be used to acquire players in the final year of their contracts, one for Nash ($4.9 million) and Randle ($1.5 million). Nash is out with back issues while Randle broke his leg in the first game of the season.
The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 20. The Lakers have prioritized cap flexibility for the summer of 2015. To make a trade, the team presumably would want players in the final year of their contracts, unless they're able to acquire a player they'd gladly use their cap space on next summer.
