LOS ANGELES—On Friday, Lakers star Kobe Bryant said he had contacted longtime teammate Derek Fisher about the trade that sent him from the Lakers to the Rockets. Bryant acknowledged that the conversation was emotional, by his standards, saying, “We just talked about the good times and what a fun time it was to go to battle together and things like that, but that’s about as sentimental as I’m going to get.”

Rockets coach Kevin McHale probably would have liked it if Bryant had forwarded the call to him when it was over. Two days after the Rockets and Lakers completed the deal, Fisher still has not reported to the team, even though Houston is here at the Staples Center to play the Clippers. Fisher could seek to get a buyout from the Rockets rather than report to a team that is fighting to get into the playoffs.
