Despite his tweet – Dwight Howard joins the 76ers on a one-year deal
The chaos within the NBA free agency just never stops. This time it’s Dwight Howard who created another awkward moment before finally joining the Philadelphia 76ers on a free transfer. Let’s take a look at it while we do prepare some solid NBA free picks for you.
At a certain moment nobody really knew what’s happening with Dwight Howard. We all believed he’s going to move the 76ers before he tweeted he’s about to remain at the Los Angeles Lakers. Just minutes after this Howard deleted his tweet, creating a huge controversy.
We still don’t know what or who made Howard delete his tweet, but one thing is clear now – he found his new home. It’s being reported he already agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.
The 76ers are going to be Dwight Howard’s sixth team in the NBA. Last season he had just a bench role for the Lakers, but he still managed to help the team win the championship. Before this he used to play for the Orlando Magic, the Houston Rockets, the Atlanta Hawks, the Charlotte Hornets and the Washington Wizards. The NBA title he won with the Lakers in 2020 was the first in his career so far. He’s eight times a NBA All Star and he was chosen three times for a NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
It remains to be seen how Dwight Howard will contribute to the Philadelphia 76ers next season. He’s always a massive signing, so 76ers’ new head coach Doc Rivers must be happy with this business done by the club. It’s going to be a debut season for Rivers, so he would happily use players with Dwight Howard’s experience and ability. The 76ers’ biggest goal remains winning the championship, but it’s never an easy thing to do.
