Yet another messy moment due to some communication tragedy has come in the realm of NBA free agency – if you consider the booted Bogdan Bogdanovich sign-and-trade as the first event. These include the Dwight Howard and the Los Angeles Lakers.
Shortly after 7 p.m. ET, Howard tweeted that he would be a Laker, announcing that Shams Charania and Bobby Marks It seemed to be confirmed only through his Twitter. But after a while, Howard And Charania posted an update on Howard’s condition via Athletic NBA Insider, and both deleted their tweets. Turns out there was no transaction to actually advertise.
It is not entirely clear what caused the tweet to be deleted. Howard announced the free agency an hour after it began, so there’s nothing to worry about. Whatever the reason, one thing is clear: this is deeply enjoyable.
The good news is that Howard eventually got a new home in a free agency, something he didn’t originally disclose.
The Lakers were Howard’s fifth team in five seasons after just floating around in the lead to show his team in places like Atlanta, Charlotte and Washington. While he didn’t have a big statistical surge, taking a bench role with Los Angeles, he played a significant role in the Lakers Championship last season.
