Terms of Dwight Howard’s Lakers contract revealed
Dwight Howard is officially signing his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday, and it’s now clear what he’ll be making as long as he’s on the roster.
As Howard is signing a deal with no guaranteed money, he will not start earning salary until Oct. 21. As long as he remains on the Lakers’ roster after that date, he will earn $14,490 per day.
The contract that Dwight Howard will sign in LAL is called a “summer contract” because it has $0 salary protection (comparable to Anthony Bennett in Houston). Howard will earn $14,490 for every day he is on the roster. The per day clock will start on Oct. 21.

The Lakers definitely hold all the cards here. They believe Howard will behave while with the team. If he doesn’t, they can get rid of him at no risk whatsoever.
