NBA rumors: Dwight Howard approves the waivers, officially signing with the Lakers, would wear the number 39 next season


Dwight Howard has officially approved the waivers after being sidelined by the Memphis Grizzlies and is signing his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic:

The lakers later confirmed the move.

While some might say "Did not we know that it was already happening? Why this news? " and I answer them: did not we say the same thing about hiring Tyronn Lue as head coach? Whenever something that is said in the works is actually done after that, it is of actuality.

But as for Howard, we'll see if he says it makes sense, but number 39 is an extremely random number, and the Internet had fun with:

But there could be a simpler explanation:

Dwight's contract being a "summer contract", he only remembers how he will be on the ice to start his second stint in Los Angeles. The Lakers offer no guarantee of money here, and if Howard does not commit himself to play the role that the team asks him, he will look for another training that will soon be hung up. However, if it bounces, filters and ends the lobs, it may last a little longer.

For a player with as many new starts as Howard has had, changing now is a big deal. But to add another, if it was ever time for Howard to change things and show that he can contribute to victory as a player, it would seem that this is the moment. He must admit that this may be his last stroke of the NBA at this point, and one would think it would mean he would pay attention to his positives and negatives to make sure he takes advantage of it.

If he does not, well, he will no longer be around and his No. 39 uniform will be a collector's clothing to wear around the Las Vegas Summer League.
