Dwight Howard leaves Lakers and agrees with 76ers

Dwight Howard leaves Lakers and agrees with 76ers

Very strange situation on the first night of free agency. Just a few minutes after the opening of the market, both the renowned Shams Charania, as well as Dwight Howard himself, announced on their respective Twitter accounts that the pivot had agreed to return to the Los Angeles Lakers. Both posts were deleted seconds later, but they had already been leaked around the NBA world.

“I stay right where I belong. Laker Nation, I love you all. Purple and gold never get old, “Howard had posted. Just an hour later, Charania himself has reported that Superman has agreed to a one-year contract to join the Philadelphia 76ers.

What makes the case more curious is that the pivot moves to Philadelphia for the veteran minimum of $ 3.6 million; making it clear that money has not been the reason why Howard has backed down (even in the Lakers he could have achieved a higher figure).

Daryl Morey takes the three-time defender of the year from the Lakers again. As he already did when he commanded the Houston Rockets. From a strictly sporting point of view, Howard will be an important replacement for Joel Embiid’s rest minutes. Already last season he has shown to have left his ego problems behind, impacting very positively in the minutes he had with the Lakers. (GG) (NBA Maniacs)
