Kupchak ‘Optimistic’ on Howard Re-Signing
(Lakers general manager) Kupchak initially said Tuesday it was “hard for me to say” whether (Dwight) Howard would return.
Later, though, he expressed confidence in re-signing Howard and “selling the Los Angeles Lakers” to him.
“I think he has complete faith in the organization. I think he does like living here. I think it’s all good, which leads me to why I’m optimistic,” Kupchak said. “But if there’s something here that we’re lacking, I don’t know what it is.”
