Dwight Howard Rumors Update. The latest Dwight Howard to the Lakers rumor involves the Cleveland Cavaliers according to Hoops World writer Alex Kennedy. In the deal, Howard would come to the Lakers, Andrew Bynum would go to Cleveland and a bunch of draft picks and prospects would go to Orlando.
David Pingalore of WKMG Local 6 in Orlando reported that it is a certainty that Howard will end up with the Lakers and that all of the Houston Rockets rumors are just a smokescreen.
Any talk of Howard being moved should be met with a heavy dose of skepticism. Remember when it was certainty that Howard would be a Rocket? A Net? A Laker (the first time around)?
