There's been  plenty of speculation  about how Kobe Bryant will spend life after the NBA.

The 20-year veteran's  $680 million in career earnings  mean he shouldn't have to work another day in his life. 

Those familiar with Kobe Bryant's  tireless efforts on the court  shouldn't be surprised to learn the 37-year-old retiree already has a new gig with a familiar team.

Bryant will  join the new "Ghostbusters" squad  for a cameo role when the reboot of the '80s classic premieres in July. On Thursday, he gave  The Players' Tribune  an exclusive first look at his appearance.

This won't be Bryant's first IMDb credit. His rookie year, he made an  appearance on the '90s sitcom "Moesha,"  playing opposite his  famous prom date, Brandy Norwood . His next cameo came almost 20 years later, in the  2015 comedy "Daddy's Home."

Although the five-time champion would be a great fit as an NBA coach or color commentator, Bryant's new Mamba suit appears to fit him just fine for now.

A "Ghostbusters" spot featuring Bryant  will air during Thursday's NBA Finals .
