LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles Lakers have signed All-Star guard Kobe Bryant to a 2-year contract extension.
General manager Mitch Kupchak made the announcement Monday, ending speculation that Bryant could end up with another team after this season. Kupchak said the team's priority was to have Bryant finish his career as a Laker.
Terms of the deal were not released.
Bryant hasn't played this season as he recovers from surgery on his torn Achilles tendon in April. He's the Lakers all-time leading scorer and currently ranks fourth on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
