WASHINGTON (AP) — Wearing his practice shorts and a sweatshirt, Kobe Bryant looked as if he was ready to return action.
After the Los Angeles Lakers signed the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history to a two-year contract extension, Bryant said he can’t wait to play.
“The Lakers came up with the structure — a system and a plan they thought was a win-win for everybody involved. From my perspective, it was very easy to accept it,” Bryant said.
In what he says will probably be his final contract, Bryant says there was no negotiation.
Bryant’s new deal is reportedly worth $48.5 million, and it takes him into his 20th season with the Lakers.
He hasn’t played this season while recovering from surgery in April on a torn Achilles tendon. He won’t play on this three-game road trip, but he’s looking forward to three practices in the four days off that precede Los Angeles’ game in Sacramento on Dec. 6 as a possible return.
“Those three days when we get back are going to be huge,” Bryant said. “I need some more practices to measure it and test it.”
