Jason Whitney The Rockets have made it known they will pursue Dwight Howard, but could they instead get Andrew Bynum?
The Houston Rockets already have the makings of a talented young team with the core of James Harden, Chandler Parsons and Omar Asik. Could they add a dynamite center to pair with this core come summer time? The Rockets have made it known they want to bring in a talented big man since the Pau Gasol trade fell through thanks to commissioner, David Stern. Now according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, the Rockets will pursue not only Dwight Howard, but also Andrew Bynum.
We know Rockets will go after D12 n summer but word is they’ll pursue A Bynum if D12 unavailable. assuming AB plays well n return this yr.

Omar Asik who signed the “poison pill” deal this past offseason is making only $5 million the next two years of his deal. However, during the third year of Asik’s deal, the price rises to $15 million. Asik could be a very attractive trade chip if the Rockets were to land either Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum, if nothing else for the expiring $15 million in year three.
If the Rockets were to land either Howard or Bynum, they certainly would be the early favorites to rival the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference for supremacy. With several young trade chips to bargain with, the Rockets seem poised to piece together a championship contending team by 2014.

The Los Angeles Lakers have filed a complaint with the NBA regarding all the hard fouls it claims are being committed upon center Dwight Howard.
Dwight Howard should have picked another team, a team that didn’t have a Kobe on it. A team that needed a guy like Howard to be a leader. A team where his talents could have shinned. Recently I read an article stating that Howard wants to avoid the circus. Really? If so, then why did he pick L.A. as his destination? He should have known every move he and his Lakers teammates...

The Los Angeles Lakers secured a big win last night against the Brooklyn Nets.

Philadelphia 76ers general manager Tony DiLeo said crabby, and shady, center Andrew Bynum is entering the “most critical part” of his rehab. “When he practices, bangs, jumps, moves — that’s really the most critical part,” said DiLeo, 57. “We’ll just … Continue reading →
Dwight Howard said that he will not put his career at undue risk to save the Lakers' season.
The biggest fear of Andrew Bynum's doctor is that he suffers a bone bruise.
Injuries continue to plague the Lakers big men this season. Pau Gasol will be out 6-8 weeks after suffering a partial tear of his plantar fascia. The injury happened late in the fourth quarter Tuesday night as the Lakers matched up against the Nets. The Lakers are already without the services of back up forward Jordan Hill and Dwight Howard who missed his third game in a row because...
Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak believes his center Dwight Howard is taking to many hard fouls. Kupchak filed a complaint with the NBA regarding hard fouls on Howard.
Kobe Bryant had 21 points and eight rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame the absences of Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace, and the loss of Pau Gasol to beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-83 on Tuesday night.
Antawn Jamison, starting for the suspended World Peace, made the go-ahead basket during a closing 14-3 run for the Lakers, who have won three straight and six of their last...

Last night's victory over the Orlando Magic was the least bit impressive.
The victory was not the night's biggest story; Thaddeus Young's injury was. Young suffered a left hamstring strain during second quarter of the Sixers 78-62 victory over the Magic. News came back, but Young did not.
Today, Young went and got an MRI done on the hamstring and it revealed that he has...
