Lakers Rumors: Dwight Howard Will Not Sign an Extension with the Lakers

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

According to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.com, Dwight Howard and his representatives have informed the Los Angeles Lakers that Howard will not sign a long-term deal with the Lakers if they are able to trade for him. It’s always been rumored that it was more the public perception that Dwight Howard was always going to follow the lead of Shaquille O’Neal and head to LA.

It could be that Shaq has beaten that idea out of Dwight’s head during his tenure as the new TNT analyst. There have been numerous times that Shaq has called Andrew Bynum the best “true center” in basketball. Last night, Shaq even went as far as passing his superman cape to Blake Griffin after that monster dunk on Kendrick Perkins. Shaq believes it was his right to pass along the cape to who he thought was worthy.

Being that Dwight has been using that superman schtick for a while now, that could have been the final straw that broke the Lakers back in their attempts at landing the all-NBA center.

It is now believed that Dwight will force his way to the New Jersey Nets where he will team up with Deron Williams to form yet another power team in the eastern conference.

Of course, we all know that Dwight Howard has been changing his mind more times than a girl picking a dress for the prom, but this time, it might just be for real.

Update from Mr. Kennedy

Update from Ken Berger of CBS

Despite assertions to the contrary, the Lakers remain firmly on Howard’s list of three teams he’s asked to be traded to, along with the Nets and Mavericks, multiple people familiar with the situation said.

    howard u sound like a little pussy right now…its a shame that gasol had jus became harder than u..like 50 cent said u like a pop tart homie u soft in the middle

  • Stokedonit

    I don’t think we need him. Bynum is plenty good enough. We should be trying to steal D-will though.

    Guys honestly i think its over. Seriously. Dwight would have led to d will joining us but no diwght= no d will= no lakers. Lakers r gonna lose first round of playoffs

    • Stanniner

      the lakers are much better off with bynum and gasol than howard. we only need a point guard to win the championship

      • Ianandlisl

         Dwight is saying he won’t sign with the lakers in order to lower his trade value and force Orlando to trade him for Bynum (straight up).  We will then turn around and trade Pau for Dwill.

        Easy on the Dwight hating.  He is a beast and has missed like 6 games in his whole career.  BTW Bynum had an injection in his knee before the all star game which is why he played only 6 minutes.

    I just think that D12 is afraid to be compared to Shaq because Shaq dominates the League while he is with the Lakers and to sum it all up, Shaq has 3 rings as well… D12 is afraid that he would fail alot of expectations from him.

  • Mastersam2000

    We don’t need a dogwite, we got a rising star (Bynum) in our own back yard in the front of our eyes and we can’t see that the center position is very good, what is lacking for many years in our nation is pointing to the guard.

  • Adis10stl

    howard is a lil bitch pussy ass dude

  • Alejandro Reyes87

    We dont need Howard, Nynum is a better ofensive weapon<
    All we need is a PG and a SF…to help World Peace!!   lol

  • .R

    lakers fans why so mad? howard don’t want to play with no old kobe…kobe is great but he is 33 now…howard 25 or 26 years old….lakers would have to trade bynum n gasol for howard…who would howard be playing with? kobe and metta world peace… please ..lakers had traded odom which gave them an extra trade chip….lakers need a point guard period…bynum playing his ass off…but long term in LA…they need howard hands down…but too bad he coming to bk with my nets…lol

    • 현 류

      good. keep howard out of la. he can go join the pathetic nets and cry there.

      • Pasie17

        woooord its not even they nets are going to be if he ends up going. PSHHHHH give me a break.

  • purp&yellow

    all i can say is fuck david stern n all the other owners if weve gotten chris paul then there wouldnt b any need of talkin about this bitch howard

  • purp&yellow

    bring on dwill he knows lakers is his best shot of reviving his career

  • Tae Man

    We have the Bynumite. F that drama queen.

  • RockSneaks

    I think Shaq is PURPOSELY trying to sabotage the Lakers by planting stuff in Dwight’s mind so that he won’t come to the Lakers. I think Magic Johnson and Shaq are BOTH haters, and don’t want Kobe to get a 6th ring.  Ring 6 or not, KOBE IS THE BEST LAKER EVER!

    IF true, I hope Dwight reconsiders, because I would love to have him here in LA!
