Kobe Bryant Was Not Traded To The Pistons

And that's about all we know to be true.  There was a report that he was dealt in principle before invoking his veto power.

According to radio station 1270 AM in Detroit, the Lakers and Pistons came to an agreement to trade Bryant to the Pistons.

However, Bryant used his no-trade clause to veto the trade.

The report claims the deal was completed late Tuesday night.

Detroit would have sent Tayshaun Prince, Rip Hamilton, Amir Johnson and a first round pick to the Lakers.

Of course the Pistons deny everything.  Stay tuned next time for As The Kobe Turns.
