Dwight Howard Wants To Come Back To The Lakers & Play Alongside LeBron

After Golden State Warrior Kevin Durant's second championship, Nike Basketball spotlighted him in a film.

All three players are ideal fits next to LeBron.

While Leonard's desire to leave Texas does not come as a surprise, it asks hard questions of both franchises. The Lakers could be planning on including him in a deal for more experienced help, which would go much of the way toward explaining the acquisition of Rondo.

The answer to the former might be a reluctant yes.

And he also snubbed what could have been the most money and longest deal available, the Cavaliers being able to extend James a five-year contract worth $209 million.

Leonard's San Antonio Spurs future is up in the air after the small forward's relationship broke down with the franchise.

James, a two-time Olympic champion, left Cleveland before in 2010 for the Miami Heat, where he reached the NBA Finals 4 times, going 2-2, before departing for the Cavaliers, vowing to bring a title to Cleveland, his home region having grown up in nearby Akron.

The minimum requirement for the team will be to end that postseason streak and that should be achievable with the best player in the world now in their lineup.

The hometown hero began his career with the Cavaliers, signing for the side fresh from high school as the number one pick in the 2003 draft. According to Turner, the two men talked for three hours about building the Lakers into a championship team and about off-court business. Randle will immediately become an unrestricted free agent. I think that had a lot to with race at that time, too, and that was another opportunity for me to kind of just sit back and say, 'OK, well, how can we get better?

It might be tough to imagine Klay Thompson leaving the Warriors, but his father did play for the Lakers.

"I have no idea at this point", he told reporters. Last week George opted out of the final year of his deal with the Thunder on Saturday, fueling speculation he would in fact move to L.A. this summer, but on Saturday he announced he had signed a new four-year deal with Oklahoma.
