 Lakers Slip In Pursuit Of Dwight Howard - RealGM Wiretap

The Los Angeles Lakers were thought to be the team Dwight Howard favored most when he requested a trade from the Orlando Magic. While the Lakers were easily the team Howard thought about most in the summer, his desire to play for the Lakers changed after a conversation with Kobe Bryant, a source said.*

Howard envisioned going to the Lakers and forming a devastating one-two punch with Bryant. But Bryant had other plans for how Howard would be incorporated into the Lakers.

Bryant told Howard that he wanted him to come to Los Angeles and help him win two more championships, but not as an understudy. He wanted Howard to be the team's third option behind himself and Pau Gasol, according to a source. Bryant tried to sell Howard on being his "Tyson Chandler" and made it clear that Los Angeles would be his, but only once Bryant decided he was done playing.*

Howard was turned off by the idea.*

Howard stated that there was "no way" he would give up everything he has in Orlando to go to the Lakers and be the third option, a source close to the situation said. Howard certainly wouldn’t mind being a third piece on a star-studded team, similar to the situations in Miami and Boston. However, he was turned off by Bryant's presentation as it suggested something totally different.*

The feeling is so strong, in fact, that Howard's representatives have informed the Lakers that Howard would not sign an extension if they trade for him this season, according to a source. The only two teams with a realistic chance at signing Howard long-term are the New Jersey Nets and Orlando Magic.

If he opts in for one more year Orlando will have the cap space to go out and sign some of those players form his list. Along with a deep draft this year...ya never know.

Yeah, Kobe really knows how to screw up a relationship, doesn't he? If Dwight thinks Kobe is really in charge of that kind of thing, then maybe he's as dumb as I've accused him of being. We still have to hold our breath, so to speak, until after the trade deadline, but if Bynum and Gasol and the rest of our starters are learning how to really operate over the course of 48 minutes, we can just kick back and enjoy the progress until Mitch surprises.

honestly..........its monta or bust.

if otis can't pull a trade for monta before the deadline (which he wont and cant) then dwight is pretty much gonna go play with his b00ty partner Dwill so they can both cry and complain and lose together.

they'll never be contenders so it doesn't really matter anyway

I'm good with Bynum, just get us a Point Guard and we'll see how it goes. Kobe is wild for that though. If it were anyone but Pau I could actually seeing him say that sh*t.

I dont agree that Howard should be a third option behind no fu*king Pau Gasol. That's insane, Kobe was bugging with that. BUT at the same time, with Kobe being the leader of the team and the face of the franchise, he has to right to dictate roles to a potential new comer. It's Kobe's team after all, and if Dwight is so mad about something like this then he's TOO sensitive in my book.
