Kobe to Sign an Extension?

Says here that Bryant is on the cusp of re-upping for three more years: “Kobe Bryant elected not to terminate the final two years of his contract and was expected to sign a three-year extension sometime this month. Bryant would make a guaranteed $47.8 million over the next two years and could earn another $86 million to $91 million with the extension, depending on NBA salary-cap figures to be determined in 2011. There was optimism that the sides would reach agreement, one source familiar with the situation calling it `a layup` but declining to speak further about specifics.”
