NBA veteran Dwight Howard signs to play season in Taiwan
Dwight Howard couldn’t find an NBA team offering him a contract this season, so he is headed overseas.
Howard is a future Hall of Famer, but at age 36 has a limited role in the modern NBA. He averaged 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds a game for the Lakers last season. While maybe an NBA team would have turned to him mid-season as a replacement, that was far from a sure thing, so Howard took the deal that got him back on the court – and in a league where he should dominate.
