Report: Kobe Byrant happy with Lakers' free agency moves
“I can sit here and tell you with 100 percent honesty that I'm happy with the effort the organization put forward this summer”
Bryant, who in November signed a two-year contract extension worth $48.5 million, averaged 13.8 points, 6.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds over six games in 2013-14 before suffering a season-ending knee injury in December.
The team agreed to terms with power forwards Jordan Hill, Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis and Ryan Kelly; wings Wes Johnson, Nick Young and Xavier Henry; and acquired guard Jeremy Lin in a trade with Houston.
Los Angeles won 27 games and missed the playoffs last season. The team has yet to hire a coach to replace Mike D’Antoni, who resigned in April.
