Kobe Awaits Last Game of Career After Monday’s Loss

After 20 seasons and 1,565 total games, Kobe Bryant stands just 48 minutes away from retirement. The Los Angeles Lakers icon will close out his storied career Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center, and the 37-year-old will play in that finale, a rather monumental achievement considering his previous three seasons were all cut short by injury.

“I feel really excited and very happy and I’m looking forward to lacing them up one more time,” Bryant said Monday after his team’s 112-79 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena, the 677th and final road game of his career.

Restricted free-agent center Mason Plumlee has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal to return to the Denver Nuggets, league sources told ESPN.

Agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports and Denver president of basketball operations Tim Connelly reached agreement on the deal late Sunday night, league sources said.

With the deal, Denver was able to avoid Plumlee signing a $4.6 million qualifying offer for the 2017-18 season — which would’ve allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
