One NBA executive doesn’t understand why the Los Angeles Lakers have interest in Dwight Howard.
Howard, who is a member of the Memphis Grizzlies, is expected to be waived by Memphis before the 2019-20 season starts. The former superstar big man is reportedly going to work out for the Lakers, who are in need of another center after losing DeMarcus Cousins to an ACL tear:
“He brings drama. Why risk anything this year?” one NBA executive said of Howard and the Lakers, given the team’s playoff aspirations, via Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report.
Howard has played for four teams in the last four years. He appeared in just nine games last season with the Washington Wizards.
