This may be one of the most ridiculous trade rumors that is out there, but crazier things have happened. With the Los Angeles Lakers seeming less confident by the day that they will be able to hang on to center Dwight Howard, there is some discussion around the Internet that the team could keep Howard in L.A. but with the rival Los Angeles Clippers.
The rumor says Howard would go to the Clippers in exchange for Clippers star Blake Griffin and guard Eric Bledsoe.
A blockbuster trade of this nature would certainly rock the league, but it would actually improve both sides. That said, teams don’t deal players to their rivals too often and it is highly unlikely that this trade would ever go down. It should be noted, however, that this rumor has been around since mid-June, so the fact that it is resurfacing closer to the pivotal July 1 date where Howard is set to become a free agent could make things interesting.
