Lakers Rumors: Dwight Howard Reportedly Leaning Towards Leaving LA

NBA: Houston Rockets at Los Angeles LakersThe Dwight Howard saga continues, but this time it’s taken a seemingly unfavorable turn for the Lakers. According to Chris Broussard of ESPN, Howard is leaning away from the Lakers, and is reportedly unlikely to return to Los Angeles next season.

Here’s Broussard’s report;

There is very little chance of Dwight Howard re-signing with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer, according to sources close to the situation.

Howard is willing to forgo the extra $30 million the Lakers can pay him to play for a coach and in a system he feels will better use his skill set, one source said.

This is certainly disheartening for the Lakers, who just spent loads of money on Dwight Howard billboards that are strategically placed around Los Angeles, including one on Staples Center. It would take a fairly determined desire to leave town to leave $30 million on the table, but Howard’s displeasure with Mike D’Antoni’s system and his inability to coexist with Kobe Bryant appear to be the main issues.

The Rockets’ James Harden and Chandler Parsons have reportedly been in constant contact with Howard, in hopes of luring him to Houston. And, at the moment anyways, it appears it just might work.
