Rumors: Nets possibly targeting Howard again?
With the trade deadline a month away, NBA trade rumors will begin to heat up. There's a rumor going on that the Brooklyn Nets are possibly targeting Dwight Howard again. In this scenario, Dwight Howard would go to Brooklyn, Brooke Lopez would go to Minnesota and Kevin Love would go to LA. Of course, these are just rumors, but you can see that with the Lakers season at a downward spiral scenarios like this are bound to come up in talks.
If Dwight Howard decides to leave Los Angeles, the Lakers would get nothing in return. Acting owner Jim Buss has adamantly said that he's convinced Dwight Howard will sign with the Lakers this off-season. There's no telling what Dwight Howard will do, especially if the Lakers continue to lose and don't make the playoffs.
