Beloved NBA Player Announces His Surprising Future Plans

There are few people as well-known in the NBA as Dwight Howard.

During his 18 years in the league, Howard has been an 8-time All-Star, 5-time rebounding champion, 2-time block champ, 3-time Defensive Player of the Year, and an NBA champion with the 2020 Los Angeles Lakers.

He has played for the Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Hornets, and Philadelphia 76ers.

He has had his fair share of controversies but over the last few years, Howard has been known as a hard-working, driven big man who is willing to do what it takes to help his squad.

And now he’s leaving all of that behind.

Howard, who was a free agent not signed to any team, announced that he’s departing from the NBA to play in Taiwan for the Taoyuan Leopards.

This is a fairly surprising move from Howard, who was still capable of assisting a team here in the states.

It goes to show that the league is more competitive than ever before – and the international basketball community is growing by leaps and bounds.

 

Howard Heading Out

There are quite a few free agents in the NBA who still don’t have a team to call their own.

Guys like Carmelo Anthony and Rajon Rondo are just some of the other players who are currently sitting at home as the season goes on.

Many people thought that someone would come calling for Howard, who was averaging 6.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game in his last season.

But it became clear to Howard that he would have a better chance of finding a team overseas than one here in America.

Does this mean that Howard will never play again in the NBA?

It’s not clear but it’s likely that the 36-year-old center has played his last game in the league.
