12 pts/9 boards per game but gets cut during the season for being a whiny little (bleep) about getting more touches.

This. And his 12/9 won't be empty stats, but it won't help the team win during his minutes as much as it should on paper.

I voted net negative. I think the offense will suffer so much, with him on the floor, the other team will blow us out on a regular basis.

I won’t be surprised if Howard only focuses on rebounding and blocking shots.. so something like

7.5PPG / 15.1RPG / 2.5BPG

This would be what the Lakers need, Kuzma and D.Green can be that 18-20ppg 3rd option

Green isn’t a pure scorer so 18-20PPG isn’t realistic, I’m expecting Danny to average anywhere from 10-13PPG.

I really don't know what to expect from Dwight... but I'm hoping for "High-tier role player level", so that's what I voted for.

This is the most realistic stat line. He won’t be featured in the offense

low expectations. It's not like the team is expecting him to average a double double. I say if he can give 8ppg, 8rpg, and be relatively healthy then that's a win.

Think we will initially use him as a backup, coming in for McGee. Around the 7-8 minute mark. I expect he plays a strong energetic burst, and then is expected to do the same in the 2nd half.

Injuries are always the thing though. If McGee is out, Dwight will start. His minutes bump up. So I do not believe his season averages would reflect his actual per game production or role.

However with McGee available, I would guess Dwight plays about 18 minutes a game, 8 points-8 boards-1.5 blocks. His numbers are irrelevant to me. What I want from Dwight is energy on defense and running the floor, being a good screen setter. Not pouting on the bench. Being a high quality role player. If he does that, it will work out.

I think he’ll take the starting position once he’s familiar with the offense and plays good defensively, he’ll know to not act up again or he’ll lose his career

14 PPG
12 RB
2 Blk
20-25 min
