On Tuesday, Phil Jackson suggested Dwight Howard might not have sufficient reason to return to the Lakers this summer as a free agent. "Would you? If you felt like your game wasn't going to be featured?" asked Jackson on the Dan Patrick Show. Jackson intimated that Coach Mike D'Antoni wasn't using Howard properly in the Lakers' offense. "You have to play in to Dwight Howard. You have to get back and reestablish him as the center that he potentially was going to be," said Jackson. "This year ... he had four or five less touches in the post. Most of the things he got in there were on the move."
