The Dwight Howard saga continues. According to reports, the star center has now added the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors to his list of places he wants to sign with. The list is already has Brooklyn, Dallas, and Houston. Who’s next? The Heat? Bulls? Thunder? I don’t think anyone knows what is going on in Howard’s mind. So lets talk about Dwight’s new potential landing spots.
Golden State: There is no way Howard is going to be able to make it to the Warriors because the Warriors simply don’t have the cap space. Can you imagine a lineup with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Dwight Howard? My gosh is that scary. Not only do you have the ridiculous shooting, but add in Dwight down low? That is a Dwightmare. (See what I did there?)
Atlanta Hawks: This is a much more realistic destination. Howard is from Atlanta and the Hawks have a very nice amount of money to spend in free agency this off-season. A pairing of Howard and Al Horford in the frontcourt is a nightmare, especially if Horford works on his outside game like ESPN’s HawksHoop suggested. The Hawks would still need some backcourt players, but they should be able to sign solid players in free agency because of their cap space.
I have no idea where Dwight Howard is going to end up — I don’t think he does either– but I would still love for him to come back to the Lakers next season. I know a lot of Lakers fans don’t share that same opinion. Watching Howard change his mind a million times this summer is definitely something I’m not looking forward to. Maybe he’ll make a decision soon. A guy can dream.
