Kobe Bryant's daughters to the WNBA???
It could happen ... because Lakers great and WNBA coach Michael Cooper says he can't wait to sign 'em if they're anything like their dad on the court!
The 5-time NBA champ -- who now coaches the ATL Dream in the WNBA -- was at LAX when we asked if he had any advice to Kobe in retirement.
That's when he brought up Kobe's daughters -- 9-year-old Gianna and 13-year-old Natalie -- and said, "I hope one of them turns out to be like Kobe-ish ... 'cause I'm still looking for that player!"
For the record, Kobe DID brag that Gianna is starting to shoot like him ...
SIGN HER UP!
