Report: Kobe Bryant hasn’t spoken to Kevin Durant about teaming up

Kobe Bryant hasn’t started recruiting Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant.

Yet.

According to ESPN.com, Bryant said he hasn’t had any discussion with Durant about coming to play for the Lakers when Durant becomes a free agent in 2016.

The Thunder play the Lakers in Los Angeles on Friday night in the first meeting between the teams this season.

Bryant and Durant were teammates on the 2012 Olympic team and Durant has said Bryant has given him advice during the past few years.

"He’s a constant learner," Bryant said of Durant to ESPN.com. "I’m more than happy to share what I know."
