Report: Dwight Howard agrees to three-year contract with Hawks
Free agent Dwight Howard has agreed to a three-year, $70.5 million contract with the Atlanta Hawks, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical.
ESPN’s Marc Stein reports the deal is fully guaranteed with no option, and is $7 million more than the Hawks’ preliminary offer.
The 30-year-old center, who is from Atlanta, has played the past three seasons for the Houston Rockets, where he reportedly clashed with James Harden.
Howard has averaged 17.8 points, 12.7 rebounds and 2.1 blocks over his 12-year career with the Magic, Lakers and Rockets, but his performance has dipped over the past two seasons.
He was selected to eight consecutive All-Star Games between 2007 and 2014, but has not gone the past two years.
