Josh Howard talking to four teams, apparently near decision

1 Comment

Josh Howard is still on the free agent market as training camps start to open.

We got another report — this one from soon-to-be Astros beat man (he will be missed) Brian Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune — that he is talking to four teams and is nearing a decision.

Those teams are the Sixers, Spurs, Knicks and reportedly Jazz.

Howard reportedly has a standing camp invitation from the Sixers but has not picked it up yet.

I’d say the Jazz seem a long shot as he played there last year and if he wanted to be back this would be done, but as teams are opening camps there comes a pressure to make a move so nothing gets ruled out.

Last season in Utah the veteran swingman averaged 8.7 points a game, and he hasn’t shot over 40 percent in two seasons.
