Jason Terry feels Dwight Howard would be ‘great fit’ in Dallas
Jason Terry has played with Dwight Howard in Houston and spent eight seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, so it’s worth a listen when the veteran guard pushes for a marriage between Howard and the Mavs.
Terry appeared on ESPN Radio’s “Cowlishaw and Mosley” on Tuesday, and said that Howard could absolutely fit in Dallas – if he bought in.
“It would be a great fit. I think the key cog in that wheel is Dwight,” Terry said, via SportsDay DFW. “Are you willing to come in and accept [coach Rick] Carlisle’s style of coaching? He has a great offensive system. It’s all about structure, player movement, ball movement. But the big guy really doesn’t touch it a lot on the inside.
“Obviously Rick is great with personnel, but if he did play in Dallas, Dwight would probably get some touches. But I don’t think that’s Rick’s style of play. Will [Carlisle] adjust it to have a guy like Dwight? Maybe.”
Considering Howard has openly admitted that he felt he didn’t get the ball enough in Houston, that may be a significant stumbling block. Still, Howard combined with Dirk Nowitzki would be quite the proposition. It’s no surprise that Dallas may be interested in securing Howard’s services.
