Lakers reportedly granted permission to speak with Dwight Howard

Lakers Seriously Interested In Dwight Howard

Let's take a look at three reasons why the Los Angeles Lakers will win the 2020 NBA Championship. The injury was confirmed by the Lakers and with the likelihood of surgery, he could miss nearly the entire 2019-20 campaign.

Kyle Kuzma, Anthony Davis and LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers talk before a game between the Lakers and the LA Clippers during the 2019 NBA Summer League at the Thomas & Mack Center on July 6, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

According to a report from The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Lakers are expected to request permission to speak with eight-time All-Star Dwight Howard, who is now a member of the Memphis Grizzlies roster.

"By all accounts, Dwight Howard is motivated right now and he wants to be a part of a potential Lakers team".

Raheem Sterling headed City in front in the 20th minute - his fourth goal in two games - before Erik Lamela curled Spurs level. Aguero was substituted soon after that goal and exchanged some strong words on the sideline with Guardiola as he sat down.

ESPN's Roman Shelburne reports that the Lakers' interest in the 33-year old veteran is more "due diligence" at this point, but the door is certainly open for a reunion.

The Lakers now have one open spot on their projected 15-man roster for next season. Even if he agrees to the switch he is likely to play backup to McGee, who will be the starting center unless Frank Vogel decides to play Davis as the no. 5, which the former Pelicans power forward is not keen to do.

In addition to Howard, Joakim Noah is another veteran center that the Lakers could potentially target, according to Charania.

It was reported Sunday morning that Los Angeles was expected to ask permission to speak with Dwight Howard, and now that request has been granted. "Howard is expected to be eventually released by Memphis", Charania wrote.
