Spencer Dinwiddie, Terrence Ross among players changing jersey numbers in honour of Kobe Bryant

Earlier this week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that "multiple NBA players have begun informally retiring Kobe Bryant's jersey number(s) as a tribute."

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie was the first player to change his jersey number, going from No. 8 to No. 26. Many players have since joined him in changing their number out of respect for the Los Angeles Lakers legend.

Here's a running list that we will continue to add to if and when more players are announced:

According to Marc Stein of The New York Times, the NBA is reviewing jersey number requests on a "case-by-case basis."

A total of 22 players have worn No. 8 this season. An additional 14 players have worn No. 24.

Bryant wore No. 8 between 1996 and 2006. He then wore No. 24 between 2006 and 2016.
