Dwight Howard Reportedly Interested in Joining Clippers

Dwight Howard reportedly was granted permission earlier this season to seek a trade to one of three teams: the Lakers, Mavericks, or Nets. Now Sheridan Hoops reports that Howard is also interested in joining the Clippers.

“He’s been watching them a lot. He’s intrigued by the Clippers,” a source told Sheridan Hoops.

It’s unclear if Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, has been granted permission to discuss a trade with the Clippers. The report says Howard would most likely join the Clippers in an offseason sign-and-trade deal rather than a mid-season trade. This is all assuming Dwight opts out of his current contract and leaves Orlando.

The report says Howard has soured on teaming with Deron Williams on the Nets because the squad has been so brutal this season (they’re 3-11). The Clippers are 7-3, and it was reported that Chris Paul was trying to pair up with Dwight Howard, so the report makes sense.

New Jersey seems much further from winning a championship than the Clippers, even if they get Dwight. It’s understandable why he’s soured on them. If Howard and Williams are to join forces, it would likely be with the Mavericks.

I don’t know where either player will end up, but I know things just got even more exciting for Clippers fans.

    Dwight Howard to the Clippers – that’s an exciting prospect for Clippers’ fans.  Don’t know what the Clippers would have to give up to get Howard, but if Paul, Griffin and Howard were to team-up, that would seem to be a stronger trio than Lebron, Wade, and Bosh in Miami.

    Minnesota is an unlikely destination for Howard, but of all the teams in the NBA, might be the best fit.  If Howard was to join Love, Rubio, and Derrick Williams on the Timberwolves roster, that would be some kind of entertaining lineup.

    Who runs the NBA?  With some of the things that have been going on, it is the Players.  Why have a GM?  Just let Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, etc make the deals.

    Howard don’t know what the heck he wants to do from day to day . Guy is very wishy washy. I notice Dwight can’t function unless he has a great point guard Thats the reason he keep running behind teams who happen to have a Chis Paul  Deron Williams .Try playing with a team with no point guard like Bynum.
