A lot of you mentioned his no trade clause, but if you look at baseball, there are tons of players with no trade clauses and they are still able to make trades.
The Colts have zilch to do with the Lakers. In the NFL, you can have partially guaranteed contracts...which is what the Colts had with Manning. They effectively declined their "team option" on him, and he's a free agent. The Lakers can't do anything like that with Kobe until his contract is up.
The Colts are "blowing it up". Ownership fired everybody. GM, Coach, down to the QB. They have the first pick in the draft.
That scenario has nothing to do with the Lakers...a team in a different league, in a different sport, with a totally different CBA.
You should read up on what Kobe's NTC actually is from the standpoint of his contract.
Lakers did something pretty similar...
