It has been recently reported that if Dwight Howard walks away from the Lakers contract offer, Los Angeles will not try and get something for him in the way of a sign-and-trade. There has been a lot of speculation about who the Lakers could get for him, but it appears all of it was for naught.
If what the Lakers say is true, then they could save close to $50 million in cap space and the luxury tax. That would be a huge advantage towards signing a big name in 2014. To go along with that, if the Lakers did sign-and-trade Howard, they would be paying for a player that probably isn’t worth it when they can use that cap space to sign a good free agent.
What do YOU think of the reports? Are the Lakers smart in not taking part in a sign-and-trade? Let me know down below!
