Dwight Howard Agrees To A One-Year Deal, Hilariously Changes His Mind To Sign With Philly

The NBA should never surprise us these days. Just a few hours ago, big man Dwight Howard agreed to a 1-year, $2.6 million contract to return to the Lakers. He then deleted the tweet stating his return all to change his mind and sign the same deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.

We don’t have any details as to whether or not this was Howard’s doing or if the Lakers simply pulled back their offer. Both are entirely plausible as another player the Lakers wanted, like Serge Ibaka, may be leaning towards L.A. himself. Either way it’s absolutely hilarious.

What might be more surprising is that Lakers fans were actually hoping for his return after his big 2020 season. When Howard signed last offseason after the approval of the late Kobe Bryant, fans of the purple and gold complained. Rightfully so since Dwight hadn’t done much the last few years. Things really changed fast for the future HOFer.

We’re happy Dwight is finally wanted and now that he helped the Lakers capture their 17th world championship, fans likely won’t be too hard on him this time. Dwight, never change brother.
