After a report surfaced that Dwight Howard voiced frustration regarding Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni, Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register spoke with Kupchak who said there was no discussion regarding D'Antoni during Howard's exit interview:
Kupchak said he didn't want any D'Antoni talk from Dwight anyway given Mitch's insistence that Lakers won't have any player dictate the coaching situation.
"To be honest with you, I wouldn't let it go there anyway," he said.
Howard and Kupchak spoke privately, same as some other Lakers did with the GM, after finishing their standard meeting with D'Antoni on April 30. But Kupchak said there was no talk with Howard about D'Antoni once he left the room -- and certainly no venting.
