Dwight Howard is a great man in the NBA, although these days, no one seems to remember him. However, he is expected to draw a lot of interest when he finally becomes a free agent.
Shortly, Howard will be in the free agency. The 33-year-old veteran player says that he lost 25 pounds towards the end of last season. It is reported that he is in his best shape ever. Howard is currently in the Memphis Grizzlies where he was traded last week.
Howard had back surgery last year after which he became a changed man. He told Charania that he has changed his diet and has also checked his ego. Howard level of dedication has always been questioned, but now he insists that he is a changed man.
Howard says that the last injury on his back helped him get back and structure himself. He said that he had changed his mentality, which is different now, but he will retain his personality.
These might simply be the words of a desperate frontcourt who will soon be in free agency. Howard will turn 34 years next season, and many teams in the NBA will want him. He had an average of 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds in 81 games last season.
Howard has always expressed the desire to change his image. He may find it more complicated if no team is ready to give him a chance.
