Dwight Howard Not Ready To Commit To Lakers

The Dwightmare begins again. Despite a complicated trade that landed superstar center Dwight Howard with the Los Angeles Lakers, Howard isn’t willing to commit to Hollywood beyond this season.

While the August deal ended two years of stressful speculation for the Orlando Magic, questions regarding what Howard will do in the summer of 2013, when he will become an unrestricted free agent, have already surfaced.

Howard gave no answers.

“I think the best thing to do is talk about it at the end of the year,” Howard told Fox Sports. “We just went through that last season, basically, and I don’t want to go through it again or see anyone have to go through it.

“This is going to be my decision, and I’m going to wait till the end of the year. But I’m happy to be in L.A. This is a great place. I love the coaching staff, and I love the organization for everything they’ve done for me since I got traded here.”
He did provide a carrot.

“Hopefully I’ll have a long career here in L.A.”

Rhetoric aside, most media outlets expect that Howard will sign a long-term deal with the Lakers. Howard likely wants to avoid another circus, and the Lakers likely wouldn’t have traded for him without being confident he would stay.
