Q: On if there‚Äôs any part of him that wants to be traded:
Howard: I just want to win. I just want to win right now where I‚Äôm at. I‚Äôm committed to this team, to this season and what we can accomplish right now. I‚Äôm going to do whatever I can to help this team win. That‚Äôs it.
Q: On a report about him being unhappy in Los Angeles:
Howard: Listen, I have never said anything about none of this stuff. So if anybody has a report or anything about what‚Äôs going on, if it‚Äôs not from me, then obviously it can‚Äôt be true. I‚Äôm not going to let this situation defeat me. I‚Äôm not going to let whatever has happened up until today or in the past affect me. I‚Äôm going to get back to being who I am and defeat whatever is in front of me. That‚Äôs where I stand in this whole situation. We‚Äôre going to look at this second half of the season as an opportunity for our team to do something special and something great, and we‚Äôre going to do this for Dr. Buss.
