Notable mostly because it keeps Bell from joining the Lakers.

Sources: Raja Bell spurns Los Angeles Lakers, headed to Utah Jazz

    Raja Bell won't be meeting face-to-face with longtime nemesis Kobe Bryant after all.

    He's signing with Utah Jazz instead.

    Sources with knowledge of the deal told that Bell and the Jazz have agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth nearly $10 million, prompting Bell to cancel his sitdown in Los Angeles with Bryant that had been scheduled for Wednesday night.

So instead of a truce, we get another chapter to the feud. Bell's presence might add some spice to what's been a one-sided asskicking between the Lakers and Jazz for the last few years.

MD: You have to win, no matter what.
SC: Why didn't you try that this year?

Read it and weep, fella

I laughed out loud at the title of this thread, only because they talked about this Kobe/Raja meeting that was supposed to have happened today or yesterday on the radio ALL DAY TODAY AND YESTERDAY. Then POW, he joins the Jazz instead. So much for that!

Anywho, the Lakers only have like $1.77m left of their mid-level. I dont know if they'll get anybody good for that.

Nothing to see here, move along.

I kept reading yesterday that Raja and Kobe had already put their little feud behind them and that the supposed face-to-face (did that even happen??) was really just for Kobe to convince Bell to sign with the Lakers rather than to draw up some kind of truce. I kind of want it to be the latter though. It makes me happy to think of them talking through their issues Zoolander and Hansel style.

Kobe: "Why you been acting so messed up towards me?"
Raja: "Why you been acting so messed up towards ME?!"
Kobe: "Well, you go first."
Raja: "I don't know. Maybe I felt a little threatened or something, cuz your career was blossoming with Phil Jackson and mine was being wasted on D'Antoni teams not built to win playoff series. And I felt like, 'This guy's really hurting me!'"

::coughcough:: ...sorry. Anyway...

You know, between the proposed Raja-Kobe meeting, the Amar'e-D'Antoni meeting, and the brief LeBron-Derek Fisher meeting, I'm starting to think the incessant Free Agent Summit(tm) gossip got all these other big names jealous of the attention. Now they want their turn to have their own private summits that everyone in the world hears about because they aren't really all that private. It's trendy!
