La Clipps freeing up room to try and get Kobe, which i dont think will happen. Kobe stays a Laker, which can give him the most money. He wouldnt want to play for the nba farm team.
Jonathan Givony RealGM/DraftCity: The Charlotte Observer reported for Wednesday's editions that the Clippers will trade forward Melvin Ely ($1.75 milion) and guard Eddie House ($825,000) to the expansion Charlotte Bobcats for future second-round draft picks.
That brings LA's total cap space to the neighberhood of 14 million, just enough to sign Kobe Bryant to the max or very close to it (106 million over 6 years).
The stage is now set for the crosstown rival Clippers to steal Kobe away from the Lakers.
