Lakers set to guarantee Dwight Howard contract for remainder of season according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin
Dwight Howard requested a non-guaranteed contract from the Los Angeles Lakers in his return to L.A. to show how much the opportunity meant to him.
The Lakers have until the 2 p.m. PT deadline Tuesday to waive Howard’s contract, the veteran’s minimum $2.56 million, but will not do so, league sources told ESPN, thus guaranteeing Howard for the rest of the season.
Tuesday is just a formality, of course. Howard cemented his worth to the Lakers months ago, anchoring L.A.’s second unit at the center position.
Picked up late in the summer as a contingency plan after DeMarcus Cousins suffered a serious knee injury, Howard has been a valuable contributor on a Lakers team that is No. 1 in the Western Conference with a 29-7 record.
Howard, 34, is averaging 7.1 points on 73.8% shooting, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 19.5 minutes per game. He has logged both an 8-for-8 perfect game and a 10-for-10 night so far.
So Z Nation, what do you think about the Lakers making Dwight Howard’s Contract Guarantee???
