Mavs beat writer Eddie Sefko wrote that he’s “hearing” that Dwight Howard is leaning toward either the Celtics or Hawks, with no other teams left in the picture.
We laughed quite a bit around here when folks summarily assumed that Howard was going to get a monstrous deal and/or be heavily pursued. He does fit in both locations as long as he understands that he isn’t built to be a primary offensive option anymore, and more importantly that his new team understands he’s just a 26-28 mpg guy now and that’s for his own health. If he can do that he can be the big ‘big’ that both teams have lacked in recent years. Stay tuned.
