Claudio Sabatini released another interview at SkySport24 about his project to sign Kobe Bryant during the NBA lockout.
"We have been working also last night with his agent. There is still a money difference between our proposal and his request. But we are ready to go towards his requirements. I want to thank Kobe for his words for us and Italy, he showed that he is a champion in and off the court. We raised our proposal for him but we want him in Italy, not just in Bologna, because he would be a huge addition to the whole country. Kobe Bryant would re-launch the Italian basketball. Serie A will start on October 9th, we hope that the final answer is close" said Sabatini, as reported by Bolognabasket.it
