Matt Barnes was a member of the Orlando Magic for the 2009-10 season and he had the luxury of playing alongside the best center in the league, Dwight Howard. However, despite the fact that Barnes joined the Lakers, he still keeps in touch with Howard.

Los Angeles Times’ Mark Medina writes that Barnes talked to Howard last week and the two discussed the possibility of reuniting as members of the Lakers.

“He knows the opportunity he has here,” Barnes said. “But with that said, it’s not about what we want or the Lakers want or what I want. It’s about what’s best for him and his family.”

The Lakers would no doubt benefit from adding Howard to the team and it would be an upgrade from their current center, Andrew Bynum. Although the Lakers may have to give up some of their length in order to get Howard, the team would be set at that position for years to come.

The Lakers already have traded Lamar Odom to the Mavericks, and it seems as though all of the front office’s focus is on making a push for Dwight Howard.

      exactly all they really need to do is to get Chris Paul and try to just deal with the hornets directly give them their 2 first round picks and someone else , or even to try and go get chauncey billups

    i pretty sure nba tv view will drop, especially if lakers don’t get howard. Huge amount of lakers fan might turn off the tv till stern leave.

    I love lamar odom as a player and as a person of good character. This trade is one of the biggest mistake that the Lakers powers that be will feel repercussions for a long time. Now lets be real about the situation. Lets get rid of Daddy’s baby Luke Walton, bad attitued and bad, inconsistent Matt Barnes, why did we get him in the first place? The list goes on. Why would you screw with the only team member that showed consistency all season? The team moral was low last season, how do you think this is going to work out this season? The LOVE of money is the root of all evil and this is a prime example. Like everyone is saying, we let Lamar go for absolutely nothing. Good luck management with such a asshole decision. Fortunate for you all, most of us laker fans are loyal to the team and the players, not any of you.
