As for expectations? He said those remain unknown, tied to the progress of a still-sidelined Kobe Bryant.
“No real expectations,” Kupchak said Wednesday, addressing the media in advance of the start of camp. “I do believe that [Bryant will] get back and he’ll play this season. You won’t be able to look at him and say that he’s hurt. In other words, some guys like myself when I hurt my knee, I always had a limp. You won’t be able to tell [with Bryant].”
