PBT Extra: What do the Bulls do now? Why the Lakers signed Kobe.

4 Comments

Injuries changed the landscape of the NBA this weekend and Kay Adams and myself talk about it on the latest PBT Extra.

First, with Derrick Rose out for the season in Chicago — and repairing the meniscus was the right move — big questions start to face their front office: Do you let Luol Deng go? Trade him? Amnesty Carlos Boozer? If you do all that to clear out cap space for free agency can you get?

Then we touch on the injuries to Marc Gasol and Andre Iguodala and what that can mean for Memphis and Golden State.

Finally, I say that I get why the Lakers signed Kobe Bryant to a new $48.5 million extension, even if it’s not the smart move for building a team long term.
