Kobe Mum on Free Agency, Carmelo Anthony
Q: So that means you won’t explore free agency next summer?
Bryant: “Am I a free agent right now? No. Next summer is next summer. How do I know what is going to happen? Jim Buss just said they’re going to start conversations now. We will start the conversations and go from there.”
Q: New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is a good friend of yours who has said he would explore free agency next summer. Have you spoken with him about free agency?
Bryant: “He’s in New York. I’m in L.A. I have no idea what he is going to do or what he is thinking about.”
