No, Robert Horry won’t be coming back to play for the Lakers.

Horry (shown at left with the Spurs) was in town Sunday night and dropped by Staples Center for the Lakers-Heat game at the urging of Rick Fox, his former Lakers teammate. Horry went on the FSN West halftime show with Fox.

Horry, who won three of his seven NBA championships with the Lakers, is in town for a charity event that will be held Tuesday.

Horry, who became known as ‘Big Shot Rob’’ for his clutch shooting, hasn’t officially retired. But he said he has no designs on playing again.


‘I’m just hanging out with my family. That’s all,’' Horry said.

Fox told Horry that he would come back to play if Horry returned. Fox joked that Horry should come back and play for the Lakers the last 15 regular-season games and then be ready for the playoffs.

Horry just smiled and said, ‘Oh, right.’'
