Dwight Howard to Join LA Lakers (With Stipulation)
In meetings with Lakers management, coaches and teammates — including Memphis officially waived Howard on Saturday.-Woj (ESPN)
Howard will surrender $2.6 million of his $5.6 million guaranteed salary to Memphis in the buyout, league sources said. He can earn back the $2.6 million on his veteran’s minimum deal with the Lakers — if he stays on the roster beyond Jan. 7.
Memphis never intended to bring Howard to training camp, so the savings turns out to be a significant financial bonus for the franchise.
Howard has played with the Hawks, Charlotte and Washington — and been waived after trades to Brooklyn and Memphis without ever wearing a uniform. He played only nine games with Washington before back surgery ended his season.
Since Boogie has torn his ACL. the Lakers are in panic mode. They are thinking of resigning Dwight Howard to the LA Lakers. Trouble in Paradise? I think so. I think they are over compensating. The Clippers will definitely do better than the Lakers this year!
