A bizarre and surprising September saga has come to a close. Right when it seemed like we were poised for news of the opposite, The Athletic’s Shams Charania broke the news that the Golden State Warriors have decided to not sign future Hall of Famer Dwight Howard.
News broke last week that Howard, an eight-time All-Star, three-time Defensive Player of the Year, and one-time champion, was working out with the Dubs. It was easy to see the team’s reason for interest, given his size, resume, and defensive ability. It was also easy to be confused about their interest and assume trepidation, given that Howard didn’t play in the NBA last year, and has played for seven teams in his career, none of which seem to remember their time with him particularly fondly.
