03:31 PM ET 05.20 | Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard may be considering a move to the Houston Rockets or Dallas Mavericks through free agency this offseason, but the crosstown Los Angeles Clippers won't be suitors for the big man. With players like Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan already under contract, it's expected that L.A. will try to retain point guard Chris Paul with its available cap space this summer. Paul is an impending free agent like Howard, but he's a stronger fit for the Clippers' roster and the general familiarity between the two sides makes him a more palatable option. Still, some analysts had wondered whether Howard could be a possible consolation prize for Los Angeles should Paul sign elsewhere. For now, it appears that's not a strong possibility.

Guess as the season dies down, interns have to REALLY stretch for articles.

There was a CP3 sighting w/ Dirk and Cuban in Vegas. And Dirk is not even into poker games... Let's see how Cuban will mess this up now.
