Los Angeles Lakers General Manager, Mitch Kupchak, tells us if this past season was his most stressful year with Dwight Howard's departure.
Mitch Kupchak: "This year with Dwight, no. I never had a feeling when we traded for him that this was a place he wanted to be. A lot went into the decision to do it. We don’t look back and regret it for one second. Our feeling was that if we can get him here we hoped it would be a place he wanted to be for the next 8-10 years. I never really thought with great certainty that this was going to be the place he was going to end up. When the season concluded in early May, I just never got the vibe that this was the place he wanted to be. When the decision came down in July, I was not surprised."
