Kendrick Perkins wants Dwight Howard to go to Lakers; Joakim Noah to Jazz
Former NBA player Kendrick Perkins believes that the Los Angeles Lakers should pursue Dwight Howard instead of Joakim Noah.
The Lakers are looking for a replacement for DeMarcus Cousins, who is likely to miss the entire 2018-19 NBA season after sustaining a torn ACL.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Los Angeles is set to have workouts with Howard and Noah to gauge if they are a good fit to the current Lakers roster.
But if Perkins would have it his way, he wants the Lakers to sign Howard because he is a better fit than Noah. The one-time NBA champion center added that Noah is more suited for rejigged new-look Utah Jazz squad.
“I’m going to say this again the Lakers need a big that’s a dynamic roller to the basket and that’s a lob threat at the rim, a rebounder, and shot blocker and people can say what they want but the best fit is Dwight Howard,” Perkins said. “I like Noah but he would be a better fit in Utah.”
Aside from Davis, Los Angeles also added two-time champion Danny Green, Quinn Cook, Avery Bradley, and Jared Dudley to bolster their supporting cast next season.
