Per Sam Amico of Fox Sports, if the Houston Rockets cannot land Dwight Howard on draft night, the Los Angeles Lakers will likely move in on Howard in the next couple of weeks.
Source close to situation says if Dwight Howard isn’t dealt to Rockets today or tomorrow, Lakers fans may have reason to get excited. “Rockets are exhausting resources. If it’s not enough, (Lakers) will likely move in within the next few weeks.”
Obviously, a deal with Lakers would center around center Andrew Bynum.
