Dwight Howard wanted out of Houston and he got his wish. He has agreed to a three year contract with his hometown Atlanta Hawks. The deal is reportedly for three years/$70.5 million dollars. Howard had expected to meet with a few teams but the Hawks made him feel loved and he didn’t feel the need to meet with anyone else. The Hawks certainly won’t be contending for a championship with him but if they can win and build something the next couple years then this deal is probably a success. Howard has averaged 17.8 points and 12.7 rebounds in his career with the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets.
