Dwight Howard Update: Lakers Deal On The Back Burner?


Mike Bresnahan and Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times have the story:

However, one person in the Lakers’ organization has been talking to Howard.

Kobe Bryant has had at least one in-depth phone conversation with Howard recently, even discussing how Howard might fit in with the Lakers’ scheme.

One person with knowledge of the conversation said Howard came away feeling as if he wouldn’t be the Lakers’ top option, for obvious reasons. It’s Bryant’s team.
