Lakers News: Actor Jack Nicholson Reached Out To Dwight Howard

JackThe Lakers are pulling out out all the stops as they try and re-sign Dwight Howard as they’re using their Hollywood connections to help persuade him to stay.

Howard has stated his desire to pursue a career in Hollywood during and after his playing days and that’s been a major selling point for Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak.

However, according to JA Adande of ESPN.com via Dave McMeniman of ESPNLA.com, a high profile Laker fan has already reached out to Howard:

It’s been reported that Time Warner executives will be present at the meeting tomorrow night, as they would want to develop a show around Howard if he’s to stay with the Lakers.

The Houston Rockets have already met with Howard, who is scheduled to meet with the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors today.

Regardless, the Lakers are putting the full-court press on Howard as he hopes to make a decision about his team for next season by July 10.
