Warriors don't plan to pursue Howard

Publish date:

The Golden State Warriors don't have interest in signing Dwight Howard, according to a report from the New York Times.

The Charlotte Hornets traded Howard to the Brooklyn Nets. Howard and the Nets are expected to reach a buyout agreement.

Since requesting a trade from the Orlando Magic, Howard has played for the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks and Hornets. He's been unable to stay anywhere and is reportedly a huge locker room issue.

Howard was fairly productive with the Hornets in 2017-18. The big man averaged 16.6 points and 12.5 rebounds while shooting 55.5 percent from the field in 81 games.

Once he gets on the open market, it is unclear which teams will pursue Howard.
