Kobe Bryant said that he’s still considering playing overseas because an owners’ lockout of players threatens to sabotage the upcoming NBA season.
The Los Angeles Lakers superstar told The Associated Press on the sidelines of a youth basketball clinic in Singapore that he didn’t know if there will be a 2011-12 season and hasn’t ruled out playing abroad.
“I could,” Bryant said Saturday. “I’m playing abroad right now.”
Clubs from Turkey and China have both approached Kobe about playing oversees, if the lockout continues, its to imagine a healthy Kobe Bryant sitting a home waiting for an agreement.
Bryant said he may join informal workouts with Lakers teammates in the future, but that no such sessions have been scheduled yet.
