Howard to Lakers

  1. Bynum gets fresh chance to show maturity, be a leader

    Aug 10, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    It was more than just Andrew Bynum’s play compared to Dwight Howard’s that had the Lakers working hard to put together a blockbuster four-team trade that sent Bynum to Philadelphia and brought Howard to L.A. It also was about whether the Lakers thought Bynum could be the face of the franchise after Kobe Bryant retires…

  2. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  3. Kobe denies report of poor recruiting call with Howard

    Feb 7, 2012, 1:28 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    We passed along the report over the weekend, one that cropped up in a couple places, that a conversation where Kobe Bryant tried to recruit Dwight Howard to Los Angeles turned off the center. That Kobe told Howard that the offensive options would be first Kobe, then Pau Gasol, then Howard. Which struck me as…

  4. Dwight Howard situation could hold up Sessions to Lakers

    Feb 3, 2012, 4:38 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Much like happens any time there is a big trade looming out there, other moves get bottlenecked up behind it. Case in point — the Lakers need a point guard and have interest in Ramon Sessions, who would be a good fit and be better than anyone they have on the roster. But here comes…

  5. Magic GM: Dwight Howard’s trade list remains unchanged

    Feb 1, 2012, 9:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    There are no Chicago Bulls on the list. No Los Angeles Clippers, no Boston Celtics or Golden State Warriors. While other teams keep trying to fill the Dwight Howard trade rumor void, Howard’s original list has not changed, Orlando GM Otis Smith told the Sun Sentinel. Magic General Manager Otis Smith told the Orlando Sentinel…

  6. Lakers, Magic not talking Dwight Howard trade; Kobe is talking to him

    Jan 20, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Only one thing — a potential Dwight Howard trade to the Lakers — is going to get talked about more than how lost the Lakers offense looks in the next 24 hours. With Los Angeles headed into Orlando for a Friday showdown, let’s do a trade update: There isn’t one. The two sides are not…

  7. Report: Dwight Howard adds Clippers to list of places he’d sign

    Jan 16, 2012, 6:48 PM EDT

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    Dwight Howard with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul? Take that Miami. This would be the new Big Three. Howard apparently likes the idea — almost as much as Clippers fans. No matter how unlikely it is in reality. Howard has added the Clippers to the list of teams he would sign an extension with, reports…

  8. Lakers still aren’t going to trade Bynum and Gasol for Howard

    Dec 26, 2011, 10:57 AM EDT

    Mike Brown, Pau Gasol

    There’s a feeling out there that the Lakers are going to cave — that they are eventually going to agree to trade both Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol to get Dwight Howard. That’s the feeling in Orlando, where they sit on Howard waiting for the deals to improve. (Or him to change his mind, but…

  9. Lopez injury limits Orlando’s Dwight Howard trade options

    Dec 22, 2011, 4:25 PM EDT

    lopez-howard

    The foot injury to Nets center Brook Lopez has not left the Dwight Howard trade stuck in the mud. It was already there. Orlando has put the breaks on the process — they are not ready to trade Howard. Maybe they think they can convince him to stay, maybe they think the offers improve closer…

  10. Report: Magic end all trade talks for Dwight Howard

    Dec 14, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Do not think for a second this is permanent. But when Christmas Day comes comes Dwight Howard will suit up for the Orlando Magic against the Oklahoma city Thunder. The Orlando Magic have cut off all trade talks for Howard, according to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski. Magic decided to take Dwight Howard off market,…

  11. Report: Lakers will not trade Bynum and Gasol for Howard

    Dec 11, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    The Lakers are starting to play a little hardball in their negotiations. Or at least threatening to. First they pull out of the Chris Paul trade, surprising the Hornets and Rockets, and now this nugget from the well connected Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register. I’m told the Lakers will not be trading Bynum…

  12. Magic may file tampering charges against Nets for talking to Dwight Howard

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    And you thought the Chris Paul situation was messy…. The Orlando Magic are considering filing tampering charges against two NBA teams for reaching out to Dwight Howard (who is still under contract to Orlando), reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. This report has been confirmed by other sources. Those two teams are the New Jersey Nets…

  13. Report: Dwight Howard has not told Magic his intentions

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Chris Paul has been up front — he sat down with Hornets officials on Monday and was pretty clear he was not signing an extension and returning to New Orleans. He is not stringing the Hornets along (which is little consolation for the team’s fans). Dwight Howard on the other hand… He has seemed conflicted…

  14. Report: Andrew Bynum “indifferent” to trade rumors

    Dec 3, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    Andrew Bynum went straight from high school to the circus environment that can be the Los Angeles Lakers. It is in those three rings where he learned how to be a professional. That started with the little things, like eating healthier after practice than McDonalds, and worked its way up to dealing with the media.…

  15. Report: Lakers will trade Bynum for “right deal” (meaning Howard)

    Dec 1, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    Jim Buss has a fondness for Andrew Bynum. Buss is now the guy calling the day-to-day shots for the Lakers but when he was coming up he was one of the champions of the Lakers drafting Bynum. This has made Bynum sort of Buss’ sign that he could do this job while many around the…

  16. Orlando not ready to trade Dwight Howard. Yet.

    Nov 30, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    dwight_howard

    Give this to Magic general manager Otis Smith — he was pretty up front. He has about the most difficult job in the NBA right now: Either retool the Magic roster enough that Dwight Howard wants to stay (a job Smith made harder on himself with bad moves last year), or find a way to…

  17. Report: Nets to make big trade offer for Dwight Howard

    Nov 30, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    New Jersey — soon to be Brooklyn — made a big move last year to get its first star in Deron Williams. Now owner Mikhail Prokhorov needs to get a second star and convince them both to stay. How about Dwight Howard? The Nets are going to make a big move to try and get…

  18. Rumor: Lakers to make run at Dwight Howard AND Chris Paul?

    Nov 29, 2011, 12:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Chris Paul

    Now we know the lockout is officially over because ridiculous, outlandish Lakers trade rumors are flying around and gaining some momentum. Like the Lakers getting Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Reality be damned. These ideas gain traction because Lakers fans dream big. Outlandishly big. Plus Lakers ownership can be bold. It’s one of the reasons…

  19. Dwight Howard: “I don’t know what else I can do” in Orlando

    Oct 17, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Once the lockout clock mercifully stops, the “what will Dwight Howard do?” clock will start. (Chris Paul will have one, too, but that’s not our focus today.) Every time Howard speaks directly about Orlando, he says loving and glowing things. But ask him about his legacy and free agency — as Esquire Magazine did —…

  20. Report: Howard, Magic talking two-year extension

    May 31, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Dwight Howard keeps talking about how he wants to win in Orlando, how people shouldn’t be talking about him moving on. But the only way silence the rumors is to sign an extension. Howard and the Magic are talking about a two-year extension and it only awaits his signature, according to Orlando’s Local 6 Sports…

  21. Dwight Howard tells Orlando fans he’s not Shaq

    May 31, 2011, 8:37 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard may have gotten mad at the Orlando Sentinel for it, but the speculation is everywhere — talk about where Howard will play next is rampant. He can opt out of his current deal in the summer of 2012 and that means if he wants he can put the Orlando Magic in the same…

  22. Jim Buss heading Lakers may mean no Bynum trade

    May 26, 2011, 7:19 PM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    Among the favorite pastime of some Lakers fans is a game called “Where can we trade Andrew Bynum?” Kobe Bryant has even played this game before. Bynum has been offered up in deals ranging from Dwight Howard to a rack of shootaround basketballs. Those games may be over. One thing the hiring of Mike Brown…

  23. Dwight Howard takes shot at Orlando Sentinel for “dumb articles”

    May 10, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard has tried. Unlike LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, who seemed to revel in the attention of trade or free agency rumors (at least at first), Howard has tried to shut it down. He can be a free agent in the summer of 2012 but has refused to discuss it. Monday night, while the…

  24. Just so we’re clear, the Magic aren’t trading Howard

    Apr 29, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard is not talking about Dwight Howard the free agent. But theoretically next season Howard could turn the Magic into this season’s Denver Nuggets — he could use the threat of his free agency to force a trade. But that’s not happening either. Magic GM Otis Smith made that clear as possible to ESPN…

  25. Dwight Howard tries to kill free agency rumors. Good luck with that.

    Apr 29, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Give Dwight Howard this — he is trying. LeBron James made a half-hearted effort to stamp out the free agent rumor circus around him, but at first he seemed to enjoy the attention enough that he let the fire start and by the time he tried to put it out it was too late. Carmelo…
