What's This?

102613-KupchakTalks between Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant‘s agent Rob Pelinka and team general Mitch Kupchak regarding a contract extension are underway.

This is according to the team’s executive vice president Jim Buss, who spoke with ESPN Los Angeles last night regarding the situation.

“I want to put an end to any speculation that we would allow Kobe to become a free agent,” Buss said.

“That’s not going to happen. Kobe is a top priority for us. He’s a Laker legend and always will be. I don’t think we’re done winning championships with him yet.

The 35-year-old Bryant is in the final year of an $83.546 million contract, the highest salary in the league, which will pay him $30.453 million this coming season.
