According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Philadelphia 76ers have a one-year contract with the free agent center Dwight Howard.
Free agent Dwight Howard has agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, his agent Charles Briscoe told @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.
Dwight has had a championship season with the Los Angeles Lakers where he averaged 7. 5 points, 7. 8 rebounds and 1. 1 blocks in 18. 9 minutes. Howard is a far cry from the player he was in the late 2000s / early 2010s, but he was a very reliable backup center for the Lakers last season. With Dwight behind Joel Embiid on the rotation, the Sixers can rest assured that they will always have the court personnel needed to protect the rim.
Bobby Marks reports that Howard is coming to Philadelphia with a non-guaranteed veteran minimum. Excellent signing on my book as a low risk option and a chance for the Sixers to access the middle level exception.
The Dwight Howard contract in Philadelphia applies to the $ 2 veteran minimum exemption. 6 million per league. The cap hit is $ 1. 6M
Howard previously played for the Houston Rockets under a front office led by Daryl Morey, and it’s likely the connection played a strong role in luring Howard away to Philly and from the Lakers. In fact, Howard had actually tweeted tonight that he was committed to the Lakers, only to delete the tweet shortly afterwards.
Dwight Howard tweeted that he was staying with the Lakers. He deleted the tweet almost immediately. Then he allegedly weighed his options. And finally agreed to a deal with the 76ers lmao pic. Twitter. com / B5IGKL1Nc6
UPDATE: With Howard leaving L. ONE. The Lakers are now following Marc Gasol, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.
Marc Gasol has emerged as a free agent target for the Lakers to fill in the void left by Dwight Howard’s departure to Philadelphia, League sources say
Maybe I can reach here, but when Gasol leaves Toronto for L. ONE. , that just makes Dwight’s signature a little more valuable. Gasoline is one of the few greats in the NBA that is causing Embiid problems. Now it sounds like he’s leaving the Eastern Conference.
Free Agent Montrezl Harrell has signed a two-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, @KlutchSports’ agent Rich Paul told ESPN.
Maybe gasoline doesn’t go to L. . ONE. After all. This also explains why Howard left L.. ONE. interested in finding more playtime elsewhere (Philly).
