Kupchak Issues Statement on Howard Leaving

It was a wild day, but it’s done. Over. Finished. Want proof? Here’s a statement by the Lakers’ General Manager, Mitch Kupchak:

“We have been informed of Dwight’s decision to not return to the Lakers. Naturally we’re disappointed. However, we will now move forward in a different direction with the future of the franchise and, as always, will do our best to build the best team possible, one our great lakers fans will be proud to support. To Dwight, we thank him for his time and consideration, and for his efforts with us last season. We wish him the best of luck on the remainder of his NBA career.”

If you need more to convince you on Howard leaving, I’m not sure what to tell you.

Dwight Howard is no longer a Laker.
