LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Welcome back, Dwight?

After missing most of the 2018-19 season with injuries, Dwight Howard is headed back to the LA Lakers, according to reports.

Howard last played with the Lakers six seasons ago, helping them into the postseason before a devastating Achilles injury to Kobe Bryant dashed their playoff hopes.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Howard’s deal with the Lakers is non-guaranteed, meaning the team will have the leverage to release the eight-time All-Star at zero cost if things don’t work out.

The move reportedly comes after several meetings between Howard and team officials along with several other Lakers players.

Howard has been waived by the Memphis Grizzlies and will reportedly sign with the Lakers once he clears waivers.
