DENVER - Kobe Bryant has met with Nuggets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe, opening up the possibility the Lakers free agent could be moving his
basketball home to the state where he will stand trial for sexual assault next month.
A Nuggets source told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday that Bryant had a meeting with the Nuggets GM on Monday.
Denver, which was some $23 million under the salary cap before re-signing center Marcus Camby last week, is expected to target top free agents before
Denver made the playoffs in a huge turnaround last season, with budding superstar Carmelo Anthony leading the way. But the possibility of landing
All-Star Bryant apparently is too good to pass up -- despite his legal troubles.
