Default Kobe Bryant agrees to 2-year Lakers extension

It's official: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=14828

------



Here goes a link from ESPNLA >>>> http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...angeles-lakers

Quote:
Kobe Bryant signed a two-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday.

The Lakers did not announce financial terms of the deal. Bryant, who is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon, will make over $30.4 million this season, the final year of his current contract with the Lakers.

The team announced the deal in a press release, saying that the signing "should ensure" that the 35-year-old Bryant finishes his storied career with the Lakers.

"This is a very happy day for Lakers fans and for the Lakers organization," general manager Mitch Kupchak said in the release. "We've said all along that our priority and hope was to have Kobe finish his career as a Laker, and this should ensure that that happens.

"To play 20 years in the NBA, and to do so with the same team, is unprecedented, and quite an accomplishment. Most importantly however, it assures us that one of the best players in the world will remain a Laker, bringing us excellent play and excitement for years to come."

I didn't see this coming at this time. Good for both parties. It's nice to see someone stick with a franchise their whole career . . . even if they did force their way there.

Can't believe Kobe agreed to sign for the 2 year minimum amount. Kudos to Kobe though. Doesn't need a mega 2 year contract. He's all about winning!






Just kidding.

Appears first year salary can be decreased by up to 40% via renegotiate/extend

Says only teams under cap can renegotiate. Lakers are not.

If the max decrease for Kobe is 7.5%, minimum salary next year is $28.1 million. If max decrease is 40%, minimum salary is $18.3 million.

Kobe has too much of an ego to take less than the max. Highest paid player in the league? Yep good luck with their FA Goals for 2014.

Wait he's not being renegotiated; he's just being extended.
