How will the Lakers look 3 years from now? Will Kobe and Odom still be a part of it? Sound-off.
HOOPSWORLD: The biggest name could be Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, expected to execute his early termination option. The odds favor him returning to the Lakers with a new long-term deal but the future is never certain.
The Los Angeles Lakers certainly hope and expect to keep Kobe Bryant. Lamar Odom’s future may not be as crystal clear, but if both leave the Lakers could have some room. Then again, Andrew Bynum is hoping to get a massive extension before the regular season even begins, putting them right back over the cap.
