Kobe Bryant Close to 1-Game Deal in Italy?

by October 12, 2011

Now that the NBA has begun to axe regular season games, Kobe hooping in Italy is looking more and more likely, even if it’s just for a single game. Reports Sportando (via Bologna Basket): “Kobe Bryant, as reported by Il Resto del Carlino, is close to accepting the single game proposal made by Claudio Sabatini, owner of Virtus Bologna. The two parts are negotiating intensively in the last hour and a solution for the saga seems close to end. Kobe Bryant would land in Italy for four days and play one game in the ‘Kobe Night’. According to Sabatini there are already sponsors and networks ready to cover the event. Sabatini offered to Bryant $2M for the single game.”
