Keep in mind, this is coming from the guy that said Kobe Bryant wouldn’t show up in training camp.
Clublakers: According to Ric Bucher on ESPN Sportscenter, he said Kobe was ready to begin the season with the mindset that the Los Angeles Lakers were not going to grant his wish and trade him, but now that they have mentioned the possibility, he wants it to happen as soon as possible. Here are the deals he mentioned that were discussed.
Dallas – Jason Terry and Josh Howard
Chicago – Ben Gordon, Andres Nocioni, and Tyrus Thomas
He mentioned that the Dallas offer was an actual offer and that Jerry Buss took a few days to think about it and then rejected it.
He also mentioned that the Chicago scenario is more of a discussion since the Lakers front office wants all negotiations to start with Luol Deng.
