: : Why because he is a tradable and too valuable of an asset to let walk scott free.

Any offer above 3yr/54M ($18M per year) could make Julius into a serious financial liability should any team decide to move him in the future. Dallas is said to have interest and may offer more than the Lakers should match.
Julius does many things well, but last year he shot 35% beyond three feet in an era most 3 point shooters shoot over 35%. He doesn't fit with every type of player the Lakers are targeting in free agency.
Lakers probably won't get anybody in 2018 and may have to throw money at Brook, IT and KCP on large one-year deals, or take on Melo's contract and draft picks from OKC before buying him out. Call in the tank brigade!
