While All-NBA forward Anthony Davis is on course to eventually agree on a new deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, no formal commitment is expected to come in the immediate days following the start of free agency Friday, sources told ESPN.

And then reports surfaced that indicated Howard was still considering all his options, despite the fact that Howard himself (!) declared he was returning to Los Angeles.

Howard, 34, is considered among the greatest big men of his generation, with career averages of 16.7 points, 12.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game. Did some term of the deal with the Lakers change?
