They must really think they can win a title this season and convince Dwight to sign on again.

It makes sense, tbh. If LA is able to flip Bynum for Dwight and keep Gasol, a Nash/Kobe/MWP/Gasol/D12 team would easily be the favorites for a title. And if LA wins a title, why wouldn't Dwight re-sign?

Let me ask you this. Is there any doubt Dwight would sign an extension if he's playing for the Lakers, making max money, in Hollywood, for the signature franchise, with Kobe, Nash, Pau, etc. competing for titles? Really? Where the f-ck else would he go? Charlotte?

Not to mention throwing millions of dollars out the window in the process..

Because he doesn't want to follow in Shaq's footsteps, from Orlando to LA.

Isn't there a difference in being traded there "against your wish" than leaving in free agency?

I guess I can understand their reservations since he just had major back surgery, but Bynum isn't some ironman either..

If that's honestly the reason he doesn't want to play for arguably the league's most storied franchise alongside two all-time great players like Kobe and Nash, then he doesn't even deserve to touch a basketball. That's pathetic and petty.

Somewhere he would actually want to play maybe.

whoever owns dwight's bird rights are going to secure him. if that ends up being LA, they can pay him more than anybody else. i get it - it's not his #1 choice, but money always talks. on top of that, he'll get a max deal from adidas being in LA.

he's also said as recently as february that he'd like to team up with nash...

He agreed to opt into his final year of his contract to make sure he did not get traded to LA.
