DeMarcus Cousins suffered another devastating injury, as he tore his ACL while playing pick-up game. Lakers planned playing DeMarcus as starting center, but now their plans are ruined, so they need to look at the market of free agents once again. Shams Charania reported that there is mutual interest between former 3x defensive player of the year Dwight Howard and the Lakers.
During his first tenure with the Lakers Dwight had really bad chemistry with his teammates, especially with the Lakers legend Kobe Bryant. He was there for just one season, and during that time he averaged 17 points and 12 rebounds a night, and was named an all star.
