Lakers will pair Dwight Howard with LeBron James, Anthony Davis after center’s Memphis buyout, report says

It appears like Dwight Howard will be making a return to the Lakers for the first time since 2012-13, when he spent one season with the team.

The Grizzlies are negotiating a buyout with the big man, who plans on signing with Los Angeles afterward, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources.

Howard will sign a non-guaranteed deal with the Lakers, according to a report from ESPN.

Los Angeles lost DeMarcus Cousins to an ACL tear earlier this month, leaving JaVale McGee as the only active center on the Lakers’ depth chart. Howard, Joakim Noah and Marreese Speights were also considered as potential replacements for Cousins.
