Lakers Shooting Guard Kobe Bryant inked his 2 year, $48.5 million dollar contract extension and is set to make up to $50 million dollars. “This was easy,” Bryant told Yahoo Sports. “This wasn’t a negotiation. The Lakers made their offer with cap and building a great team in mind while still taking care of me as a player. I simply agreed to the offer.” Bryant will make $23.5 million and $25 million in 2015 and ’16. Kobe Bryant is still the highest paid player in the NBA. Take that to the bank!
