Dwight Howard's time with the Los Angeles Lakers seems limited. He was expected to come over this season and eventually sign a long-term extension. Now, it's not certain he would sign one, and it's not certain the Lakers would want him to. And apparently, the Lakers have even tried trading him.
According to Chris Broussard of ESPN, the Lakers tried to pull off a trade that would have sent Howard to the Boston Celtics in exchange for the injured Rajon Rondo. Broussard makes sure to point out the Lakers have denied this rumor.
The deal doesn't make much sense in the fact that the Lakers have a point guard in Steve Nash, and Rondo is going to miss the rest of the 2012-13 season. The Lakers may need to make some changes, but making a deal like this proposed trade just doesn't make sense.
Howard has been battling his way back from back surgery this season, but to add to the problems, he also has a torn labrum in his shoulder. Rondo tore his ACL a little over a week ago. He is expected to be ready to go by the start of training camp next year.
