Dwight Howard to Hawks on three-year deal

Dwight Howard

Roll out the red carpet because D12 is back in the Eastern Conference.

According to a report by Shams Charania of The Vertical on Friday, eight-time NBA All-Star center Dwight Howard has agreed to terms with the Atlanta Hawks on a three-year, $70.5 million deal.

The 30-year-old Howard, who was born in Atlanta and first made a name for himself playing at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, was said to have made a strong connection with the Hawks during their meeting on Friday, and now the two sides have an agreement.

The three-time Defensive Player of the Year make take awhile to assimilate into the Hawks’ fledgling culture of ball movement and team-oriented play, but could very well re-establish himself as a dominant presence at the center position in a relatively low-pressure situation in Atlanta.

Howard’s arrival may signal the exit of Hawks incumbent free agent center Al Horford, who, coincidentally enough, was set to meet with the Rockets, the very team Howard just left.
