These are the teams that would win a title with Kobe or contend deep in the playoffs.

Yes, Detroit is just the supporting cast Kobe needs. Forget these scrubs he's playing with now.

I'm going to disagree. Miami would instantly do Wade and Kobe straight up.

Kobe's having the better season and not showing the strong decline of Wade. He can actually save himself like what Wade is doing.

Wade is better than Kobe nowadays, time to realize this simple fact.

Bulls have the 5th spot and with the addition of Kobe, they will probably get the number 1 seed. He will definitely be an improvement in the back court and when Rose comes back, it will be hell for the East.

Rose and Kobe back court will be sick!

Definitely a championship with them.

It's not possible. For a borderline playoff team to take on Kobe's contract, they have to send back atleast couple of their best players to match the salaries. So how will they be contenders with just Kobe and scrubs?

Detroit is actually a pretty decent team considering how they are playing together and it's in the weak Eastern Conference. They are young and they play hard.

A player of Kobe's caliber can definitely take them deep into the playoffs.

Not a great team but good enough with Kobe.

So who will the Bulls give up? Without Rose in the trade, there is no chance of Lakers entertaining any offers with Bulls and we know Chicago wont do that!

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.

Bryant will never be traded under his current salary. No team will gut their entire roster in order to match salaries and trade for a guy who is well past his prime.

A contending team would definitely.

It's pretty much a no-brainer.

Brooklyn, San Antonio and Memphis would need his services.
