The Los Angeles Lakers’ interest in Dwight Howard might not be as significant as others perceive, at least at this point.

According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, the team’s inquiry about Howard is more “due diligence,” noting that it still very early in their decision making process.

According to recent reports, the Lakers and Howard have a mutual interest in a reunion. In fact, Howard is reportedly excited over the prospect of teaming up with LeBron James and Anthony Davis in Tinseltown.
