Dwight Howard and the Lakers have mutual interest in a new contract according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
After bouncing around the league for several years, Howard finally found a home in Los Angeles and put up a respectful 7.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 18.9 minutes per game during the regular season. His role was slightly reduced in the playoffs, especially against Miami, but overall his season was a success. Shams notes that the Warriors are interested in prying Howard away from the Lakers, so the 34-year-old big man will have plenty of options for the first time in a while. Oct 16 11:02 am (EST)
