I honestly believe that Howard never wanted to be traded to the Lakers.
He played much harder in Orlando. He will walk away this summer and sign with either the nets or the mavs. My money would be with the nets. He knows that in 2-3 years he will be in the same position as he was in Orlando. No Kobe/no Nash=a team that exits the playoffs in 1-2 rounds. Unless we somehow get Lebron in 2014 (Lebron would have to assure Dwight behind closed doors that he would sign with the lakers)
In my opinion Dwight is already checked out for the lakers and never wated to be here.
He's not gonna sign with the nets dude.. They already signed brook to the max.
