While the center who will be a free agent this summer has continued his noncommittal stance about whether he will sign with the Lakers or head elsewhere, two people close to him said they fully expect him to return. The people spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity out of respect for Howard’s decision to wait until the summer to make his final choice.

 

Good to hear

 

 

 

 

For those wondering what a max contract will look like WITH the Lakers and what a max would like another team i posted them below here:

 

 

If Howard becomes a free agent in July 2013 and then signs with the team that has him at the end of the 2012-13 season:
The only way Howard can receive a new five-year contract is if he signs a free-agent deal with the team that has him at the end of the 2012-13 season.

In this scenario, he can receive annual raises of up to 7.5 percent of the salary in the first year of his new deal.

Howard’s maximum 2013-14 salary: $20,324,178
Howard’s maximum 2014-15 salary: $21,848,491
Howard’s maximum 2015-16 salary: $23,372,805
Howard’s maximum 2016-17 salary: $24,897,118
Howard’s maximum 2017-18 salary: $26,421,431
Total over those five seasons: $116,864,024

 

If Howard becomes a free agent in July 2013 and then signs with a new team:
In this scenario, at most, Howard only could sign a four-year deal with maximum annual raises of 4.5 percent.

His maximum 2013-14 salary: $20,324,178
His maximum 2014-15 salary: $21,238,766
His maximum 2015-16 salary: $22,153,354
His maximum 2016-17 salary: $23,067,942
Total over those four seasons: $86,784,240

Max contract under current CBA with maximum percentage gains per year... It'll be a 5 year contract (max)

God I wish he would get MDA fired.  My only concern is that he is so fearful of reinforcing the notion that he is a "coach-killer" because of the Stan Van situation.

Didn't these rumors stem from some article written in the bleacher report that was locked earlier today?

It's $30m more than any other team can offer.  He's simply not walking away from that kinda dough.  But that's not an apples and apples comparison.  No state income tax in Texas and Houston is the logical alternative, so the Laker premium is really about $10m after state taxes.

I sure hope so. My Dwight howard jersey would be useless if not lol. But I have no doubt he's coming back.

^Good detailed explanation but again, state tax impact has to be considered.  12.3 % haircut in California these days.  Many folks "moving" out of state because of it, at least on paper.

I've been 100% positive (and still will be) that DH will resign with the Lakers since the day he was  traded here.

I dont think it will take too long. I truly think we will offer the max contract the second we are allowed to and dwight will resign in a few days.
