Lakers News: Dwight Howard Reportedly Adds Spurs To Free Agency List

Dwightmare: Part Two is certainly underway as the NBA Finals draw to a close in the next week and free agency will be upon us July 1.

Howard hasn’t been in the news himself lately, but there has been speculation all morning about him and Clippers guard Chris Paul joining forces.

However, it sounds like Howard has added another team to his ever growing list according to Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld:

The shocking addition to the list is the San Antonio Spurs as the other five teams have all been mentioned as a possible destination.

Howard would be an interesting fit with the Spurs only since Tiago Splitter, the Spurs only big body besides Tim Duncan, has shown during the finals that he isn’t quite ready to step into the starting lineup.

However, Howard and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich had a run-in during the All-Star game in February after Howard refused to re-enter the game.

It’s uncertain if Popovich would be able to deal with Howard’s antics for a full season as his first season in LA didn’t go as planned.

Like Houston, San Antonio would offer a contract with no income tax attached to it, but with their current cap situation, he’d have to take a pay cut. Would he do that to win a championship? Well, that remains to be seen as he’s maintained throughout this process he wants to find a team that is committed to winning.

For Lakers fans, this summer will be one of the most difficult in recent memory as Howard’s decision will set the tone for what Mitch Kupchak is able to do in order to remake the roster to compete for a championship next season.
