Howard Will Not Re-Sign With Lakers

34 posts in this topic

I'm fine with Dwight leaving since it seems like Jimmy is determined to keep Pringles.  I just hope he goes to a team that will utilize him best, because he's a phenomenal player and the NBA needs that Dwight back.  Also, I'm good because Pau's best position is at Center anyway where he can utilize his post moves.  I just hope Kobe takes his time getting back, and we are drafting VERY high in next years draft.  Then you can rebuild around that draft pick, and a clean slate in 2014/15.  I can just about guarantee this though, in 2015 Kevin Love will be a Laker....

Not surprised at all. Why would you want to.play for a team that both the fans and some teammates try to scapegoat you to cover for other people's failings in the front office and on the court?

That all depends if someone trades for him first, if Minnesota feels like they can't resign him, they'll trade him and I have a hard time believing that a team would trade a bunch of assets for Love without knowing that he would resign or inking him to a contract extension.

Dwight waivers with the wind.  I expect him back in LA or going to Houston.

I really doubt he would accept a trade to anywhere that made him guarantee he would sign a new deal.  It's one of the worst kept secrets in the NBA that he wanted to be a Laker from the day he was drafted...

I don't think there's any chance he's back in L.A. as long as Pringles is in charge.  I expect him to go to Dallas and be a true focal point....

It's not about making him sign a new deal, it's about going to a team that he wouldn't mind signing a new deal with.

Cuban will romance him to Dallas lol.

 

If Howard signs in Charlotte, I think everyone in the league's heads would explode lol.

 

I do however think he would do better in a smaller market like here, but even Dallas will be a nice change of pace for him.

Why would he do that when he can just wait two years and go wherever he wants....
