Accompanying today’s announcement that the NBA has suspended the opening of training camp indefinitely was the news of Rome’s Virtus Bologna’s $6.7 million one-year offer to Lakers star Kobe Bryant.
Virtus has given Bryant four contract options, stretching from the one-year deal to two-month and one-month options, and a per-game deal that would come out to $739,640 per home game.
The NBA players are currently locked out by the NBA team owners who are seeking significant changes to the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The common sentiment is that once players begin losing pay checks, they will cave on their desires. But if the Players’ Association can pool together money that can be distributed to players, they might not have to give in. According to union rep Billy Hunter, some stars including Kobe Bryant are willing to loan money to help out their fellow players.
