Teams don't have to gut their roster to match the trade. The bench will probably be depleted but the starting roster should not have to change much.
This is where the no-trade clause comes in affect. Kobe can veto the trade unless he thinks he can win with the team.
Seeing as how the Lakers organization is ran, they would possibly entertain any offers.
