LONDON (AP) — Dwight Howard arrived in Los Angeles four months ago. On Friday, he became a member of the Lakers.
Calling it "a fresh start" for both him and Orlando, Howard was the centerpiece of a four-team, 12-player trade that sent him to the Lakers and ended the long, drawn-out saga surrounding his long-awaited departure from the Magic.
Howard has been rehabbing in Los Angeles since having back surgery in April. He says he's "looking forward to being great in L.A."
