NBA Free Agency 2020: LA Lakers make unexpected move for Montrezl Harrell, Philadelphia 76ers reportedly bring in Dwight Howard
According to reports, Dwight Howard will be moving to the Philadelphia 76ers during NBA Free Agency 2020. This move came as a shock to many. The 34-year-old was expected to stay with the LA Lakers for at least another year, despite his higher contract requirements.
In fact, the star had even spoken out on his desire to stay with the historic franchise, but it seems like the Lakers were not ready to heed to the player's demands.
With the Philadelphia 76ers looking incredible during the reign of Daryl Morey as general manager, the NBA community is excited about how Dwight Howard will fit into this team next season.
Another stunning deal during NBA Free Agency 2020 is Montrezl Harrell's move to the LA Lakers. The 26-year-old has reportedly signed on a two-year deal with the Purple and Gold, with the second year being a player option.
With the loss of Dwight Howard, it was imperative for the LA Lakers to get a big man that can come off the bench and protect the paint as well as the 34-year-old did this past season.
