Kobe was taken 13th overall in the 1996 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Hornets and then traded to the Lakers for Vlade Divac before he ever put on a Hornets jersey.
Vlade Divac, no question.
Yes, he was the 13th draft pick by the Charlotte Hornets. However, he was traded to the lakers for Vlade Divach.
The Lakers played the New Jersey Nets in the NBA finals in 2001. The Lakers beat NJ 4-0 games in that series. They won their third consecutive NBA championship.
Bryant was chosen as the 13th overall draft pick by the Charlotte Hornets in 1996. However, according to Arn Tellem, Bryant's agent at the time, Bryant playing for the Charlotte Hornets was "an impossibility". Nevertheless, the Charlotte Hornets selected Bryant, seeing that there was a chance to trade with the Lakers. On July 1, 1996, then L.A. general manager Jerry West traded his starting center, Vlade Divac, to the Hornets in exchange for Bryant's draft rights.
