A three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Howard will likely ink a four-year, $88 million deal after opting out of the final year of his contract to stay in L.A.Had he re-signed with the Lakers, he could have seen five-years and $188 million – the purported reason he was split between the two clubs.
