Already for a few months, on his own socials and in interviews, Dwight Howard is talking about a return to the NBA. The center, a three-time Defensive Player of the Year, played last season in Taiwan precisely because he was unable to find a satisfactory contract in the States. According to Shams Charania, next week Howard. will meet the Golden State Warriors, looking for a long man to add to their rotations after signing Usman Garuba as a two-way contract.
Howard is 37 today, he will be 38 in December, and he is certainly not in top physical shape. Back problems have plagued him for several years, although that has not prevented him from playing a major role in winning a ring with the Lakers in 2020. It was to the yellow-viola that he had returned in the 2021-22 season, but with less success: after 60 games with 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds average. his contract had not been renewed.
Eight-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard will meet with the Golden State Warriors next week, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. The team has been exploring signing a reserve veteran big man, and now the 2020 Lakers championship center will visit with Warriors officials soon.
