In an interview with Newsday, Dwight Howard" id="PESPT008416">Dwight Howard. We have no intention of making a trade. It's unlikely that we'll make any trade with any of our principal players. To make another change at this time of the year behind the eight-ball like we are, I think that would make it more difficult. The talent is there. We have to find our way."
Howard is in the final year of his contract but as Kupchak notes, the Lakers have no plans to move him.
The Lakers (22-26) have struggled this season, both with injuries and chemistry, but are still just 3½ games out of eighth place. The team has recently won five of its last six.
