Lakers: Why is ex-Laker Dwight Howard in Taiwan while ex-Laker DeAndre Jordan supports Nikola Jokic? – All Lakers

By | November 13, 2022

It was fairly apparent to anybody forcing themselves to concentrate to your sorry 33-49 Los Angeles Lakers in the course of the 2021-22 NBA season that, of the group’s two former half-washed All-Star facilities, Dwight Howard was distinctly higher than De André Jordan. Jordan was so unplayable for Los Angeles that the group ultimately lower his veteran wage midway by way of the season.

He was instantly scooped up by the Philadelphia 76ers as a free agent within the remaining stretch of the season, the place he siphoned off key reserve middle rotation minutes from much better Paul “B-Ball Paul” Reed, supporting 2022 MVP runner- Joel Embiid. The Sixers head coach fondly remembers the DJ from their Los Angeles Clippers salad days, perhaps.
