Dwight Howard, Lakers
How’s this for a blockbuster rumor? Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak denied a rumor that he and Ainge have discussed sending Dwight Howard to the Celtics in exchange for the injured Rondo. Howard will be a free agent, so the potential deal would be a rental for the Celtics and a risk for the Lakers, who don’t know how quickly Rondo will recover from a torn ACL. There’s also the rather large issue of Howard’s ego.
