A former Los Angeles Lakers superstar has thoughts of returning to LA.

Now that the smoke is already settling down, the Los Angeles Lakers appears to be a confident team despite missing out on arguably the biggest name in this year's free agency market Kawhi Leonard. After all, the Purple and Gold is still a team to watch out for as the team managed to get Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins and Danny Green in their roster.

Lakers' current line up is stacked with a mix of NBA champs and All Stars but just recently, former Laker and a superstar himself Dwight Howard reportedly expressed his desire to play for LA once again.

In a recent interview, Howard shared his thoughts about the current Lakers team and apparently hinted at being open to the possibility of reuniting with the franchise, The Los Angeles Times reported. “I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I do love L.A. Staples Center is going to be rocking this season. When I played there it was rocking every night," Howard said.

The 34-year-old veteran All Star also talked about the hard work and passion the Clippers have put in for the past several years. From his statement, and with the hot air swirling around Memphis that the team is looking to trade him, it seems like he is also interested in playing for the Clippers.

"The atmosphere is crazy, not just for the Lakers but the Clippers too. I just think all the hard work they’ve put in is paying off now. They’ve always been viewed as the Lakers’ little brother, but they decided to stand out and be different and you have to thank guys like Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul for laying the foundation for this team, and then what Doc [Rivers] has done has been great. This is just all that hard work paying off," Howard emphasized.

It is not everyday that Howard talks about NBA teams. The last time he did was back in the time when he parted ways with the Lakers. And back then, Howard was a very hot topic in the offseason due to the fact that multiple teams are coming out with their own pitches to land the former Laker. Shortly after talking about possible teams he might end up with, Howard eventually signed with the Rockets.

Could this mean that he is also considering signing with either of the LA teams?
