The Lakers sign Kobe Bryant to two-year contract extension, GM Mitch Kupchak announced.

— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) November 25, 2013
Bryant, a five-time NBA champion and 15-time All-Star, is still recovering from Achilles tendon surgery and, though he's practicing with the Lakers, Bryant has yet to make his season debut.

He will, however, remain the NBA's highest-paid player despite accepting a discounted deal.

It is unsure when Bryant will return to the court this season, but he will accompany the Lakers on their three-game road trip, according to the Los Angeles Times.
