Remember all of that talk about Kobe Bryant going to play with Besiktas in Turkey? Well, the story today is that it's not going to happen.
Of course, this story will almost certainly change a couple of more times before Bryant signs with a foreign basketball team or says definitively that he's not going anywhere, but as of today, a move to Besiktas looks unlikely.
According to NBA writer Marc Spears of Yahoo!, Bryant's camp hasn't spoken to Besiktas recently and probably won't be holding serious talks any time soon. Actually, according to Spears, Bryant's camp isn't talking to "Besitas," but that's probably just a typo.
Source says @Lakers Kobe Bryant hasnt talked to Turkey Besistas in 2 weeks & currently there is a 0% chance he goes there, Y! Sports reports
There's no way that there's actually a zero percent chance that Kobe goes to Besiktas until Kobe Bryant himself says "I am absolutely not going to Besiktas," but a move is now looking extremely unlikely.
However, don't fret, people who want to see Kobe play basketball this year! No one has put a total squash on the talks of his move to a Chinese team quite yet. Don't count on it, though.
