2020 NBA Signing Tracker: All the latest contract agreements

Howard caused plenty of confusion Friday, tweeting - and later deleting - a message stating he was re-signing with Los Angeles. He said: "I would definitely like to come back and play for the Lakers again".

For all the shade being thrown at him, one thing that no one can ever take away from him is his National Basketball Association championship ring as a member of the Purple and Gold.

Roughly an hour after the initial tweet about the Lakers, Charania provided an update: Howard is heading to Philadelphia.

Dwight Howard is signing a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, his agent, Charles Briscoe, told ESPN. Howard left the franchise on bad terms following the 2012-13 season, making it a big surprise when he returned in 2019-20.

Previous year with the Lakers, Bradley averaged 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 24.2 minutes per game, making 49 regular-season appearances and all but five of them were starts.

While Howard isn't signing with the Lakers yet, the team didn't get completely shut out in free agency Friday.

Davis, 27, has several possible scenarios on a new deal with the Lakers, including a three-year, $106 million contract that would include a player option for the 2022-23 season - a structure that would align Davis with the end of LeBron James' deal.
