The career of Dwight Howard is not over yet. This offseason, Howard should be a hot commodity whenever free agency begins. This season, while with the Los Angeles Lakers, the once “best Center in the NBA” is coming off the bench for a title contender and has been quiet about it. Howard has played a small but pivotal role as the Lakers rose to one of the teams to beat.
Even if the season gets back on schedule in Orlando in July, there are rumors that Howard may not play. Even if he sits out, his offseason will not be tarnished. In 2019, Howard averaged 7.5 points and 7.4 rebounds while shooting .732 percent from the floor.
Despite his limited playing time (19.2 minutes), Howard has been great in spot duty. There were cases where he has clashed with teammates, owners, and coaches in the past but this season, Howard has been nothing but professional. If the Lakers do walk away with a title this season, Howard’s stock will be a bit higher.
Will Dwight Howard resign with the Los Angeles Lakers or look to spread his wings elsewhere in 2020?
