Kobe Bryant reportedly set for world tour

Kobe Bryant

For once, one of Kobe Bryant's overseas ventures no longer remains a pipe dream.

He's set to play in a six-game global tour beginning Sunday in Puerto Rico, reports Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, after tour organizers reached an agreement that features a television deal and paying the players anywhere from a six-figure fee to $1 million. 

The tour, which is to include LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Garnett, Carmelo Anthony, Rajon Rondo and Kevin Love, among others, will extend to stops in London, Macao and Melbourne, Australia and could feature a fifth city.

It had appeared uncertain whether the world tour would get off the ground after organizers found themselves scrambling to secure 18 signed player commitments and find a television contract. 

But this time, Lakers fans may finally be able to see Bryant play without rewatching his Drew League appearance, two-exhibition game stint in Philippines or past Lakers games.
