Q: On if thereâ€™s any part of him that wants to be traded:
Howard: I just want to win. I just want to win right now where Iâ€™m at. Iâ€™m committed to this team, to this season and what we can accomplish right now. Iâ€™m going to do whatever I can to help this team win. Thatâ€™s 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 whatâ€™s going on, if itâ€™s not from me, then obviously it canâ€™t be true. Iâ€™m not going to let this situation defeat me. Iâ€™m not going to let whatever has happened up until today or in the past affect me. Iâ€™m going to get back to being who I am and defeat whatever is in front of me. Thatâ€™s where I stand in this whole situation. Weâ€™re going to look at this second half of the season as an opportunity for our team to do something special and something great, and weâ€™re going to do this for Dr. Buss.
