Will Dwight Howard solve the Lakers' big problem?

Can Dwight Howard fill the role DeMarcus Cousins was set to play for the Los Angeles Lakers? That's what the Lakers gambled on when they signed Howard, who agreed to a buyout with the Memphis Grizzlies, shortly after Cousins suffered a torn ACL in an August workout that will almost certainly end his 2019-20 season.

Howard is one of the league's most decorated centers, but at age 33 he's more than five years removed from his last All-Star appearance. Now on his fifth team in as many seasons -- not counting the Grizzlies, for whom he never played a game -- can Howard fill a key role for a Lakers team hoping to contend in the Western Conference?
