Howard’s Father Thinks He Will Re-sign
There’s a subject being debated in the front offices of several NBA teams these days, including the Atlanta Hawks, and it’s not one that’s generally associated with one of the greatest players in the world. Is Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard really worth it?
The Lakers’ situation, Howard’s father Dwight Howard Sr. said, has worn on Howard.
“L.A. has been like humble pie for him,” he said. “When you go from being the man in one city (Orlando) to second or third tier, it takes a toll on you mentally.”
What happens after the season? Howard’s father still thinks the center will re-sign with the Lakers. When asked about the Brooklyn Nets, he said, “Oh, I doubt it. That would surprise me.”
What about the Hawks?
“Dwight hasn’t said anything about Atlanta, either. But he likes home. I think he would love to end his career here, even though he hasn’t said that publicly.”
