Talking contract

Andrew Bynum’s agent said Thursday morning that he would be traveling to L.A. on Friday to speak with Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak about a new contract for his client. Bynum is signed with the Lakers through the end of the season, but is eligible for a five-year extension worth $88 million. The deadline to complete a deal is Oct. 31.
“We shall see,” Lee told me when asked if he expects to get the deal done. “I’m not very optimistic, but you never know.”
Lee also said he has had some “very, very, very brief” talks with Kupchak.
Bynum said after Thursday’s practice that he understands it might take a while to get the deal done. He smiled and laughed and indicated he wasn’t particularly concerned about the lack of progress thus far.
