Lakers Not Ruling Out Sign-And-Trade Of Dwight

The "overriding expectation persists" that the Lakers won't faciliate a sign-and-trade of Dwight Howard this summer, but the team hasn't completely dismissed the idea, according to Marc Stein and Ramona Shelburne of The Lakers are willing to listen to just about any idea, and there are indications the Lakers wouldn't dismiss a formal offer from the Clippers of Eric Bledsoe and Blake Griffin for Howard, the ESPN scribes report.

Stein and Shelburne hear the Rockets are likely to offer Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin for Howard in an attempt to open enough cap space for both Howard and Chris Paul. Though Asik, a cheaper basket protector than Howard, and Lin, who thrived with the Knicks under current Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni, may be enticing figures for the Lakers, L.A.'s brass would ultimately prefer not to take on any salary if Howard walks. 

The Lakers have maintained a dialogue with Howard's representatives throughout the spring and are still confident they can re-sign the Dan Fegan client, even though Howard is intent on listening to pitches from other teams. The team's main priority, beyond re-signing Howard, is reducing its luxury tax bill and positioning itself for the summer of 2014. As it stands, no Laker aside from Steve Nash is signed beyond next season.

    Poor Dwight he is truly stupider than any player that has ever been in the league, he doesn’t have a clue that he needs to get this done ASAP , how could he not know what a spectacle he is making of himself and that not signing with the Lakers is just holding up the whole process. He deserves Atlanta maybe he even Cleveland. He doesn’t get it that the Money is in LA and he doesn’t get it that last year he strunk it up for serious $$$ – Wy his value is so high is beyond me and I love a great big man but the truth is he is not great when it counts. Get the Warriors to sign a trade or Clippers but don’t walk away without any compensation. There should have been a silver lining handshake with Mitch before last years deal that stated no wasted time on embarrassing the lakers or D!2 – how could anyone make that deal and not have forseen this joker doing this all over again.

    I would take a sign and trade with the Clippers and the Warriors. Clippers would need to give up Griffin and Bledsoe plus a 2nd round pick. Or Warriors give David Lee ( is he still hurt?) and Thompson for Dwight.
