Los Angeles Lakers Rumors: Team Unlikely to Re-sign Dwight Howard?

Dwight Howard

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

There are plenty of Los Angeles Lakers rumors swirling this offseason about whether or not the team will be able to re-sign Dwight Howard for the 2013-14 season. If there was anything to take away from the Lakers last year, it would be Howard was simply not a good fit in the team’s system–especially when it came to head coach Mike D’Antoni.

It was no secret the two parties had their differences last season and even though the Lakers have expressed interest in bringing Howard back to give things another shot, one of the top rumors from this week surrounding Howard involves how there’s “little chance” he signs with Los Angeles.

If this does end up being true, it really wouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering all of the teams on the open market that have expressed interest in possibly bringing Howard on board next season. There’s already been talk about Howard meeting with teams like the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, and Houston Rockets–so it wouldn’t end up being a surprise if the rumors surrounding the little chance he has to end up back with the Lakers ends up being true.

What’s even more ironic about this situation is how Los Angeles would be able to give Howard an extra $30 million compared to any other team–which shows how unhappy the center must have been playing under D’Antoni. Only time will tell when it comes to whether or not these rumors will end up being true, but if this does end up happening–the Lakers will certainly be the laughing stock considering all of the moves they made last summer just to get Howard on board for the 2012-13 season.
