Howard Ready To Move On To L.A.?

Throughout the Dwightmare, the one constant was that Dwight Howard loved Brooklyn most of all. The lure of Los Angeles, we were told, did nothing for him. He didn't want to follow Shaq's example, didn't get along with Kobe. So many of the Nets moves were based on that. Now, that seems to have changed.

Jarrad Rudolph of RealGM and Chris Broussard both report overnight Thursday that Howard has relented and is now willing to be traded to the Lakers and re-sign a long term contract with them.

But lost in all of this is Orlando's lack of enthusiasm for Andrew Bynum. Josh Robbins on Wednesday again reported that Rob Hennigan and Co. "have limited interest" in acquiring Bynum, "concerned about Bynum's knees." Bynum would also have to agree to re-sign with the (rebuilding) Magic. Whatever. The Nets are still very much interested in Howard and have planned accordingly. But know this: unlike last season, it's not their top priority.
