Steve Mason from ESPN Radio: Dwight Howard: In For A Penny, In For A Pound

Posted: Updated:

Steve Mason from ESPN Radio was here to talk the latest in the wide world of sports...first up, is this the final call for Dwight to "stay?"

(FOX 11 / FOX Sports) Dwight Howard is unlikely to re-sign with the Los Angeles Lakers and is willing to accept a smaller contract elsewhere, according to ESPN.com.

Under NBA rules, the Lakers can offer Howard a five-year, $118 million contract, while other organizations are limited to a four-year, $88 million offer.

According to ESPN.com, Howard is unhappy with Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni's system and doesn't want to play "second fiddle" to Kobe Bryant for several more seasons.

The Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks are expected to meet with Howard once teams are able to contact free agents on July 1, ESPN.com reports.

Howard, 27, averaged 17.1 points per game, 12.4 rebounds per game and 2.4 blocks per game this past season with the Lakers.

The 6-foot-11, 240-pound center was traded from the Orlando Magic to the Lakers during the 2012 offseason in a four-player deal.
