Dwight Howard Reveals 1 NBA Team He’d Love To Join

Dwight Howard is currently a man without an NBA team to call his own.

After something of an unfruitful run with the Los Angeles Lakers last year, no squad called Howard’s number over the summer.

He thinks that is a mistake.

During a recent appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s podcast, Howard suggested one team he believes he would be a perfect fit for.

“Oh man, that’s perfect,” Howard said regarding linking up with the Golden State Warriors.

“… I’m Dwight Howard. [James] Wiseman can learn so much from me because he’s headed in that direction of being a great big man.”

Howard then went on to add that Stephen Curry would likely benefit from playing with him as well.

“Steph, the way he get open with me setting screens, he’s gonna get more wide open,” Howard added.

“Klay [Thompson] the same way. Draymond [Green] in the pick-and-roll me and him. Me being able to teach Wiseman defense, how to block shots…”

Howard has been in the news quite a bit as of late. Between him revealing why the Brooklyn Nets rejected him, his brutally honest take on his Chris Paul beef and him detailing the difference between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James – it has been one thing after another.

As far as his fit on the Warriors goes, it’s debatable.

Golden State definitely needs something. Defensively, especially, the defending champs are lacking. The team currently ranks No. 25 in defensive rating, No. 20 when it comes to defensive rebounding and No. 21 in opponent fast break points.

Theoretically, Howard might be able to help.

Will the Warriors actually give him a look, though?

Time will tell.
