Kobe Bryant Nearly Traded To Pistons In 2007

Prior to the 2007-08 season, Jerry Buss invited Kobe Bryant to his home and warned he had a deal to send the Los Angeles Lakers' star to the Detroit Pistons -- a team that wasn't one of Bryant's preferred destinations as part of his trade demand. Bryant then realized he didn't want to waive his no-trade clause to leave the Lakers and, most importantly, his owner. "It hit me that I didn't really want to walk out on Dr. Buss," Bryant said Monday. The Pistons' package for Bryant included a combination of their core players and draft picks, according to sources. ------------------- Doesn't surprise me that this story didn't come out until after Dr Buss' death
