Image for Breaking News: Dwight Howard working on possible Lakers return

Since the news of Demarcus Cousins ACL tear over a week ago the Lakers have been scrambling for a replacement. Names like Dwight Howard, Joakim Noah, and Amir Johnson were being reported. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Howard is working on a buyout to sign with the Lakers. On July 6, 2019, Howard was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies for forward C. J. Miles

After just one season with the Lakers, Howard signed with the Rockets in free agency before the 2013-2014 season.

Since leaving the Rockets after the 2015-2016 season Dwight Howard has been on 4 different teams. Injuries and chemistry issues have relegated the once dominant big man to role- player status.

It was an injury-plagued season last year as Howard only played in 9 games with the Washington Wizards before spinal surgery.

It’s a low-risk high reward possible signing because if it does not work out the Lakers can simply cut him since its a non-guaranteed deal.
