he Los Angeles Lakers and guard Raja Bell will enter free agency with a strong mutual interest to reach agreement on a deal, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Kobe Bryant has become a strong advocate for Bell, a former nemesis. After missing most of the season with surgery to repair ligaments in his non-shooting wrist, Bell is still expected to be a coveted bench player among contending teams. He could give the Lakers another strong perimeter defender and a solid outside shooting threat.

Bell, 33, was dealt to the Golden State Warriors in November as part of the Stephen Jackson trade with the Charlotte Bobcats. Bell missed all but six games last season.

Bell famously dropped Bryant with a clothesline foul in the 2006 playoffs, but the two developed a mutual respect and bond. Bell was ejected and suspended a game for the foul, and complained about Bryantís tactics in the postgame news conference.

ďItís a personal thing when someone continually hits you in the face,Ē Bell said at the time. ďThatís the only way I can put it. Iíve been playing as hard as I can play. Iíve been trying to do a good job, Iíve been trying to be what my team needs me to be, and I continually get hit in my face. There doesnít seem to be any boundaries or limitations for what heís allowed to do to me, and at that point, I kind of lost my cool and I took it into my own hands.Ē

Bell made a league-high 205 3-pointers in the 2006-07 season for the Suns under coach Mike DíAntoni, but his role changed the next season under Terry Porter and he was eventually shipped to Charlotte. Bell averaged 13 points in 45 games for the Bobcats in the 2008-09 season.

I dono...33 is pushin' it for a three year contract. Might as well pick him up so somebody else doesn't? Bell along with Bowen, Artest, Battier, and now Tony Allen (imo) are the most effective defensive players on Bryant that ive seen.

Watch the Lakers sign Shaq, T-Mac, and Iverson. It's a done deal lol

Bell would be nice for the Lakers, he is old but plays good defense and shoots the 3 ball well.


BTW, Lakers forum :D

The Lakers would honestly have 3 of the top 5 defensive perimeters players of the last decade. That's just unbelievable.

He's better than any other guard coming off the Lakers bench by a pretty decent margin, unless you can think someone they already have is better? Only makes the team better. He's a very good defender, good scorer, type of guy you want on your team.

The only way the Lakers don't win the chip again is if Kobe/Gasol gets hurt for the entire season or if any two of LeBron/Wade/Bosh team up. ATM there literally is no one that can come close to knocking them off.
