Kobe Bryant Signs Two-Year Extension With Los Angeles Lakers


The Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant have agreed upon a two-year extension that will last through the 2015-16 season.

While the extension comes as no surprise to anyone, the timing of the extension is a bit strange. Bryant has yet to play a a game for the Lakers this season as he’s still recovering from his ruptured Achilles tendon that was initially injured in April of this year.

Bryant has began practicing with the team and the imminence of his return has drawn nearer with each passing day. The announcement of Bryant’s extension came via the Lakers Twitter account.

 

 

Even without Bryant playing a game for the Lakers this season, the extension being signed right now is a sign that the Lakers believe that Bryant has made a full recovery, or is very close to one, and that he will be an effective player for the next three years.

The terms of the deal have not been released.

*UPDATE* – It’s being reported that the deal is close to $48M a year per Chris Broussard of ESPN and ESPNLA’s Ramona Shelburne
