08:12 AM ET 07.26 | Though not by leaps or bounds, the Kobe-to-Turkey story advanced a bit Monday. [The] Turkish basketball team Besiktas plans to have more negotiations with Kobe Bryant's representatives on July 30 in hopes that the Lakers star will join the team. "At the moment there's a 50 percent chance that Kobe may come to Turkey," Seref Yalcin, Besiktas' head of basketball operations, told reporters in Turkey, as initially mentioned by Slam Online. "Everything will be clearer after the meeting on the 30th. We have not talked about money, as reported. We only talked about the possibility of Kobe playing in Turkey. We asked FIBA for approval and Kobe wants some time to think about it. We believe that his response is going to be positive. Money will not be a problem."
