Former Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy doesn't think Dwight Howard was happy with his role with the Lakers in their recent season.
Appearing on "The David Baumann Show" via Sports Talk Florida on Tuesday, Van Gundy said, "I do think that Dwight was not real happy with his offensive role.
"He looks around and says, 'Probably with Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash and Pau Gasol ... I'm going to have to, at best, share billing. I'm not going to be the featured guy,'" continued Van Gundy.
Does Howard's former coach think the center will leave the Lakers?
"I don't know, maybe he wants to go somewhere else, I don't know about that," said Van Gundy. "I don't think he's going to make a decision on the fact that Steve Clifford [if Clifford gets a head coaching job] or Chuck Person aren't there."
