IFWT_Dwight Howard

The New York Knicks are expected to be very active during the upcoming NBA free agency with president Phil Jackson along with the help of Carmelo Anthony ready to get out there and recruit.  It’s already clear that they have interest in Rajon Rondo, and Kevin Durant has reportedly already ruled them out; but now we have another name, Dwight Howard.

via ESPN:

The Knicks will have at least $18 million to spend this offseason on a class that includes Kevin Durant and Al Horford. They will have to spend wisely, because other teams will have more space to use thanks to the rising salary cap.

The big question is whether the Knicks, under Jackson, have a chance at landing one of the elite players on the market.

Along those lines, one name to keep in mind this summer is Dwight Howard.

Some of Howard’s friends have let it be known recently that the center would be interested in coming to New York as a free agent if he opts out of his current contract, league sources say.

Whether Jackson and the Knicks would be interested in a player like Howard is another question entirely.
