No time to worry about Dwight says Kobe
By Nick Borges
Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak has said he's not trading Dwight Howard, however that won't come to fruition until Thursday. There is still a chance Howard could be moved if a team came in with a quality offer. Either way, Kobe Bryant says he has no time to think about Howard's future.
"I don't know what they are going to do," Bryant told the Los Angeles Times Sunday night. "But at this point ... , it doesn't matter. what matters to us is what we do on Wednesday [against the Boston Celtics] and go from there. That's the most important thing. That's my message to the team is that you can't worry about the future, you can't worry about the past, you just have to focus on the present and we really have to maximize every single game."
The only teams that might be able to entice Kupchak to trade Howard is the Nets, Hawks and Clippers.
