Lakers Rumors: Team Reporter Suspects Dwight Howard Leaves Lakers

NBA: Utah Jazz at Los Angeles LakersHave you heard? Things aren’t going very well for the Los Angeles Lakers this season. Actually, that might be an understatement. Things are going so dreadfully horrific for the Lakers this season that there is talk of blowing up the team and trading away future Hall of Fame players. So there’s that.

One of the big topics this season is the future of Dwight Howard, who was acquired by the team  before the season started. Howard will be a free agent at the end of the season with the ability to sign wherever he desires. While there are some financial benefits to re-signing with the Lakers, ultimately he will have the opportunity to leave L.A. for another squad.

This morning on the Dan Patrick Show, L.A. Times beat reporter Mike Bresnahan joined Dan to talk about the state of the Lakers and the future of Dwight Howard.

“I think Dwight’s going to go. I don’t picture him staying with the Lakers this summer. Right now I’d say there’s probably a 20 percent chance of that and it’s directly tied to the fact that this team is not living up to the huge expectations of a few months ago.”

That’s trouble.

Now, this is still just speculation from one writer, but this is a guy that spends every day of the week following and covering this team, so his finger is clearly on the pulse of this franchise. Bresnahan also went on to say that the Lakers believe Howard will return next year, but that he’s not sure Howard is in a situation that he finds favorable.

Still, the Lakers need to find some solutions much sooner than next season if they’re hoping to make the postseason this year.
