Payton to choose Lakers after final discussions w/ family

Postby Lakers Dynasty 2000 on Mon Jul 07, 2003 9:59 pm

Payton and Malone spoke Sunday, apparently for the first time since Tuesday, when the negotiating period started. During a Wednesday afternoon meeting with Laker General Manager Mitch Kupchak, Malone said he would take the Lakers' $1.5-million exception if it would help them to sign Payton.

Sources close to the situation said Sunday they expected Payton to ultimately decide to join the Lakers, and to let them know as soon as today, but that he is talking with his family regarding the final details.

Thanx! Ur always on topa stuff!! So in a way it does seem official, huh? Since he actually got in touch with Karl, it seems more and more clear that we're gonna have em both... The league better watch out next season, cuz we're gonna have 4 all-stars on our team!!

Why does that day seem so far away?? With all this Kobe controversy that the media has been on since it was released, I think the days are gonna pass by more slower. Poor Kobe. :man5: I hope this doesnt change the minds of Malone and GP to comin with us, u know? It's all about the championship, and Kobe's work ethic on the court will lead them into the promise land once again... come on GP!
