Matt Barnes played with Dwight Howard down in Orlando two seasons ago, and is still friends to this day.

Barnes even recently played in a “Former Magic vs. Current Magic” charity game with Dwight back in November.

According to Matt Barnes, Dwight Howard and Baron Davis want to be in LA:

Question:  There’s one rumor out there involving a furmor teammate of yours, Dwight Howard
Matt Barnes:  You know, I’ve been hearing Dwight. I’ve been hearing Baron [Davis]. I’ve been hearing stuff a lot lately. I’ve talked to both of those guys and they want to be here, so we’ll see what happens.
Question:  What have you told them what being here [Los Angeles] is like?  Talked it up?
Matt Barnes:  A dream.  On the court, to be a Laker there is nothing like it to play in L.A.

The above just adds to the growing excitement of those that want to see Dwight Howard in the Purple & Gold this season.
